The best view of Braga

Very peaceful religious place with a beautiful forest perfect for relaxing. Hotels in the surrounding area are nice and you must travel in the tipic tram moved with water.

This is one of the great iconic landmarks of Northern Portugal. You can take the regular bus from Braga centre which drops you at the foot of the hill and then either climb the ornate staircase or ride the ancient funicular to the top. There are cafes, snack bars, boating lakes, churches and grottos around the site and I would... More

My attitude towards this site is greatly colored by the fact it poured rain the entire time, with strong gusty winds. The church itself is quite I ntetssting, if only for the very different altar scene which is more like a 3d nativity scene, with the statues set forth from the background and not just adorning the altar.

The sanctuary is lovely. Also a few hotels around here, cheaper than Braga itself. And quiet. Oh, so quite. Try walking the woods and rent a boat at the lake. Excellent sighseeing over the city. It's a must. Do not miss the opportunity.
