A beautiful ensemble of shrines in a woodland setting. Architecturally very appealing with lovely vistas out. Quiet, peaceful and inspiring.

We took an antique tram to go up. Neither of us ever heard about this place but was part of the tour. Maybe the word atonishing can describe the grandiosity of this place, his meaning, his reason, his form and all the things and facts...More

This review is to clarify how to get to Bom Jesus by public transportation. The train from Porto lands you west of Braga center. It's a 10-15 min. walk to town, where you can tour the Se and other sights. The local bus to Bom...More

The park around the church is very well-kept and it provides a great view of Braga. Although I'd advice everyone to take the tram upwards, visit church & upper park and walk downwards through the monuments in front of the church.

After a long, winding road, you will begin to see the many steps to the cathedral. As you enter, there is a park with a lovely fountain and pond with fish. There are refreshment vendors for snacks. To the left, the cathedral. To the right...More

This is must. It is recommended in each guide. You can get close to the top spot by car. Church inside is not so amazing because part of the venue- the altar is closed by curtain.

We were recommended this place by a Portuguese lady back home. Didn’t like the look of Braga much-a city...but this was like a little oasis in the middle. Worth walking up & down the steps to get different views but the funicular doesn’t offer any...More
