Ok to visit but not really spectecular inside. In my opinion Braga tourism could have done more to explain about it's histrory. You need to pay an entr'acte fee of 3 euro, can be combined with a visit to the museum.

This cathedral (the oldest in Portugal) is a remarkable place to visit. In the beautiful center of Braga, is one of its landmarks. The architecture is very beautiful all around (from the monumental outside, to the detailed inside). If you are nearby, don't miss the opportunity to visit.

It is a nice cathedral with a lot of history It isn't the nicest church of Braga though and we could expect a bit more from the central cathedral

Can't mss one of Lisbon's most iconic churches. Beautiful interior. Simple unassuming architecture. A true beauty.

Our visit to the lovely City of Braga was unfortunately fleeting and we only had time to view the outside of the Cathedral....whilst we walked through the many streets and squares and other numerous sites, gardens and fountains.... Allow lots of time for Braga!

One of the highlights of Braga for sure. In the city center and well worth a visit. Not just the Cathedral but all of the surrounding area.

The oldest church in Portugal, started to build in 1070. It was rebuilt several times, you find gothic, renaissance and baroque styles. The main and the two side altars are excellent. But I believe the nicest are the two baroque organs and the painted ceiling.

Just a portion of the cathedral could be enough. Step in, look up to the ceiling between the organs and enjoy that picture. It is unique, never saw any other similar perspective in any other church or cathedral. The tour to the other 2 smaller churches is a must and to complete the moment visit the museum.
