Braga is a city of enormous beauty and heritage wealth, which combines tradition with innovation, memory with youth, creativity with conservatism.
With more than 2000 years of a very rich history, it has one of the oldest Sacro-Montes in all of Europe and a standard bearer of the Minhota region, Bom Jesus. It is in Braga that you will find the oldest Cathedral in Portugal and the Mother House of the Benedictines, the Monastery of Tibães.
Braga presents places that, due to their intrinsic devotion and beauty, impose themselves as landmarks of mandatory reference and visit. The Sanctuary of Sameiro, Bom Jesus and Falperra, based on an appealing religious base, are surrounded by breathtaking green spaces and paradisiacal landscapes.
The Roman legacy is another of the attractive factors of Braga, often nicknamed ‘Roma Portuguesa’, the fruit of its origin in the Roman city of Bracara Augusta. Known for its distinctive churches, splendid houses from the 18th century, gardens, parks and leisure spaces. Braga’s long history is visible in all the splendor of its monuments, museums and churches.
Visiting Braga is taking a journey through time in modernity. An ancient and traditionally religious city – always imposing in its wealth and majesty – lives hand in hand with entrepreneurship and a young spirit in areas as vital as culture, commerce, gastronomy, industry and services.
