Very interesting and different sanctuary - well worth the trip. The view of Braga provides a great perspective of the surrounding area

A remarkable experience. Go for the amazing views, the beautiful gardens, the Baroque church of Jesus. Take the tram to go up the hill but take the thousand stairs down to enjoy the scenery. Spend some time to take photos and walk around. It's worth it.

You haven't been to Braga if you haven't visited this famous fairytale-like monument. Every little chapel along the stairs is a Station of the Cross. The fountains and the statues along the steps represent the senses and the virtues. And the view from the top is great.

This place is sorounded by a beautiful garden. You can access it via tram, car or by foot. The church is pretty but the surroundings are what make this place so unique with history and nice views.

I have visited this church up in the mountain of Braga, Portugal twice. It has a spectacular view, a beautiful topiary garden, and a beautiful church with a 3D sanctuary of the crucifixion scene. It is also very close to another Catholic Church - the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, which is also worth visiting. This church is conducive to... More

A nice place to walk for a walk and climb its unique stairs. Appart from that there is not much to say, the church is not so impressing.

This by far has to be one of the most beautiful religious places I have been. I was awestruck by the whole place. I cannot recommend the place enough. We drove here and it was easy to park. We couldn't find a loo or a cheap cafe. meh, We were driving to Porto.

This place is very close to my heart, been going there ever since I was a kid either to just walk around the the lovely park or to go horse ridding. You can also catch a great view of Braga from the stairs and it is definitely worth it to sit and relax there for a bit! Even as a... More
