It is said to be the oldest cathedral in Portugal. It is definitely a "must see" if you're in town. Unfortunately they should maintain it better to preserve the history.

One of the most important monuments in the historic city of Braga because of its long history. One of the most important buildings in Portugal. Look out for West Facade, the interior with three aisles, the choir and also the chapels. Historic place.

The Cathedral of Sé in Braga is a very impressive old church. I had the opportunity to listen to its Organ while visiting. Amazing. And the whole church brings you to a very quiet and relaxing state. It is an impressive architectural piece of history. A must.

This is a nice place to visit. Great architecture inside&out, nice museum. Great lessons there. I think the fee is just terrible.Specially for the portuguese turists in general. the staff is also very deluded. This building and its surroundings its part of Portugal history and is very interesting to be able to appreceat this treasure in the first person.

Perhaps if you see the cathedral from the outside you'll think that the inside would match it, but you'd be wrong. It's very beautiful inside, well preserved and lots of religious art, you must visit it!

It is worth it to go to Braga just to see this amazing Cathedral and it's museum. Inside is full of history, I recommend a tour with someone that work there. There is a crazy mummy inside of a guy who wanted to be there. The first Croix that has being in Brazil, and the parents of the first king... More

The stone church is worth a visit. There's a huge organ and the ceilings are painted with religious motifs. It's as amazing experience.

It's a magnificent cathedral. It really deserves a visit, inside there are at least 3 older chapels which helps to explain not only the Se history but city itself. The cathedral high choir along with the organs will dazzle you.
