Great views over Braga. The stairs are nice exercise if it's not too warm. But then you can take the cable car. The dioramas on the way up the stairs are a bit odd. And one of the fountains had wate coming out of this...More

We parked below and walked up the steps. It's a very interesting religious monument, and well worth the trip up. Great for photos!

It is in the top hill of the city that have good view of Braga town. We can go by car or walking the stair. There is a beautiful church and garden and also the hotel.

This church, steps, fountains and grounds are beautiful. Well worth a stop when you are touring around Porto, Braga and Guimares.

This is a wonderful sanctuary to visit with very traditional Portuguese architecture. There is a water powered elevator that will bring you to the top of the shrine for around 2€. I suggest parking at the bottom, take the elevator to the top to see...More
