Beautiful interior and wonderful organ

Make sure you get a ticket to visit not only the cathedral but also the choir and museum - absolutely the best deal and well worth the additional cost.

As someone who loves to visit cathedrals I visited Braga Cathedral on a recommendation and didn't have any cause to regret doing so. Fantastic historic building and, as someone who likes to look at the organs in these cathedrals I had never seen anything like the ones at Braga. Definitely recommended: check it out or miss out!

We weren't expecting the impressive chapels when we impusively decided to go for the guided tour. The historic chapels, which can only be visited via the guided tour, are well worth the extra 1 euro for the entrance fee to the cathedral (2 euros).

The cathedral is located right in the centre of town and you can hear its bells ringing wherever you are in the centre. The inside is beautiful and the golden organ is really amazing, would definitely recommend going inside for a look.

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.
