Braga is a city of great beauty and historical riches that combines tradition with innovation, the memory of the youth, and creativity with conservatism. The Bom Jesus, with over 2000 years of very rich history, possesses one of the oldest Sacro-Montes in Europe and is the representative of the Minho region.
In Braga, we can find the oldest Portuguese cathedral and the Motherhouse of the Benedictines, the Monastery of Tibães (Mosteiro de Tibães).
Braga presents places that, by their intrinsic devotion and beauty, impose themselves as mandatory benchmarks to visit. The Sanctuary of Sameiro (Santuário do Sameiro), the Bom Jesus, and the Falperra, founded on an appealing religious basis, are surrounded by ravishing green spaces and paradise landscapes. Visiting Braga is like taking a time travel inside modernity. The old city and traditional religion – always imposing on its richness and majesty – live hand in hand with entrepreneurship and young spirit in vital areas such as culture, commerce, gastronomy, industry, and services. Enjoy Braga! From here, go and discover Gerês, the North of Portugal and Galicia, but come back… come back because here you are near to everything.
