The church was very nice, but the grounds were breathtaking. A wonderful place to take a slow walk and enjoy the scenery. The walk down the hill was had some unique fountains showing the deadly sins with life size stations of the cross.

The church itself is undergoing uplifting work (2018). But the exterior is very interesting at every stage. Beautiful view of the city from a height. Different waterfalls/fountains. The rain had stopped just when we reached the site.

This is a must go attraction if you are in Braga. Located in the top of a hill, this church and the stairs leading to it is an outstanding piece of architecture. You can drive to the top or take the funicular.
