It was great idea to visit this place while in Braga. Beautiful stairs with cascade water streams is leading you to the old church, which is conducting services as usual, says we could attend.

Beautiful church and grounds, spectacular views! We were short on time so we parked at the top and did not have a chance to ride the elevador. Well worth the stop though.

After climbing over 600 steps I was pleased to find a little cafe where I could order a beer and sit looking over the valley. I wasn't really interested in the monuments, but the trail and the views were fantastic, and the funicular ride back...More
