This is an exquisite setting and another beautiful cathedral in a country known for its religious buildings. We took the funicular up and truly enjoyed our gradual trip down.There are individual creches with artistic works depicting biblical scenes at each level of steps. Very interesting and lovely.

Although th walk is great on the way down all those stairs where you can overlook the town. Its can be tiring to have to go all the way back up all those stairs. The church that sits at the top is beautiful and the feeling of peace thats in the air is like no other. I would definately go... More

Aside of its amazing architecture and rich history, the view of the city of Braga is the best thing the Cathedral has to offer! Go on a sunny day and you'll get an amazing opportunity for great pictures!

Wonderful views, worth the steps (tram available!) and the slight detour out of town - phenomenal views!

I loved this place It has a great view and monuments The flowers, the church the caveiras... There is something very interesting on your way out on the hill, you are driving going down the road if you stop the car, the car itself goes back even if you stop driving, it's a really nice adventure. Very spacious and clean... More

Bom Jesus is the main reason why we made the trip to Braga. We are so glad we did! The sanctuary is magnificent, hard to describe, just go and see for yourself! We took a taxi from Braga railway station (7 Eur), took us all the way to the top, then we walked down the stairs and took the bus... More

The Good Jesus cathedral just outside Braga is not to be missed. The inside of the church is cool (a 3-dimensional altar scene is unusual), but the drive there and the outside of the church are amazing! Unsure if public transportation goes there so a car may be necessary. You may find a parking space on your own, but the... More
