Magnificent sanctuary in baroque and neoclassical style, surrounded by a quiet and beautiful park. Located at the top of the mountain with spectacular views. From Braga you can access to the sanctuary by bus or yellow bus, but i strongly recommend get off the bus at the beginning of the Sanctuary and use the oldest funicular in the world moving... More

Nice place to visit, even on a rainy cloudy day. The lush forests surrounding the area are lovely and the place has quite a tranquill feeling to it, if you ignore the hordes of tourists, which were present even at closing time. The church was so so, but the view and the cool fountains, stairs and vernicular where worth the... More

We took the train from Sao Bento station in Porto to Braga ( which in itself is worth a wander ) & caught the bus to Bom Jesus do Monte. The journey was only 10 mins & dropped us off right by the funicular railway. We decided to take the unique hydraulic funicular railway to the summit ( which was... More

Bom Jesus is a must when in Braga. We drove up the hill on one of the hottest days to visit Bom Jesus. It was cool on the way up and down since the trees provide relief. Once at the top, don't go into the private driveway but veer right and look for parking. It's worth walking down the stairs... More

Visited this during a yellow bus tour, wonderful place worth visitng, I loved it. Our guide took us down the stairs which was probably much easier, but it would have been interesting going up too, for sure.

Came here twice--during the day there will be lots of tourists and people walking about. At night, it's very peaceful and seeing all the lights in Braga was a treat.
