“Amazing view over the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Only ten minutes away of the city, Bom Jesus is a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon. We can walk around the lovely park with a lake where we can rent a boat. We can sit in a café with amazing views over the city. We can go up and down the mountain in a little train that moves by water. We can visit the beautiful church. If you dare to you can take a horse riding. Your children have got plenty of places to play and enjoy. If the the weather alows, this is, if it isn't too hot, you can go down the thounsand of stairs, appreciate the several fountains and little chapels, and at the same time enjoy the landscape. It's a worthwhile journey.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Loved the place, the views and the history, all beatifully combined with nature. A place of devotion, passion and great beauty! Learn about the fountains, the gardens and the elevator (kind of tram, for those who wil prefer to clim the 116mts without a car.

“Spectacular view from the church.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Arrived on Sunday during mass with little time, so didn't get to see inside the church. Wish I'd had time to ride the funicular down to the cathedral in the city.

“Braga's perch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

It is about 5 km from old city centre on the top of mountain. You can get there by bus, and than walk up the stairs, or take cable car. The view is really magic. It is a church with a park around.
The staircase with water fountains to church is beautiful!
