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.

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.

To visit Braga's Cathedral is entering a long journey to multiple pasts. The foundations date back to the 11th century, but the building has been subject to many alterations over the centuries and it is said to rest on the foundations of a roman temple to Isis. Not all interventions have been successful from a pure esthetical point of view,... More

This is just one of those "meh" sites that you say to, okay, we get it you have a lot of churches. Braga itself is really nice but this cathedral is mediocre.

This is a place you can't miss. Very rich and ornamented. A lot of story. One the most religious constructions in the city of Braga. Braga have a lot of religious and cultural places. Visit this city in the "Semana Santa".

Renovation is in progress so an objective review is difficult. I suggest waiting to visit until all renovations are complete.
