Braga is a charming city with a rich religious heritage. Also known as the city of archbishops and once named by the Romans Bracara Augusta, the capital of Minho has much to offer.
To start with we should mention its emblematic gardens, churches and chapels, the legacy of André Soares — an icon of the Portuguese Baroque style – as well as the massive archaeological heritage we can find in every corner of the city. Braga has not forgotten its medieval past, which is a prominent feature in the cathedral.
The visit will continue with an obligatory stop at the wellknown Bom Jesus and Nossa Senhora do Sameiro sanctuaries, to then close the tour by visiting the Tibães monastery, a prominent icon of Portuguese baroque.
