We stayed at a hotel nearby. By late afternoon and evening, the park started to fill up with people. There were families gathered around, kids playing, people catching up, having coffee and appertif. Shops, art galleries and restaurants were close by.

Whilst Braga is not as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as neighbouring Guimaraes, the fountains in the main square make for a pleasing vista

This has been the focal point of Braga for many years and it's where the Tourist Information office is located. There are arcades housing a couple of venerable coffee houses, fountains and lots of Christmas decorations in season........

This is another tourist attraction that I visited with my wife it adds wow factor to the various attractions dotted around the town centre. There were so many beautiful sites to see and coupled with blistering heat all these made my visit here all the more memorable and enjoyable

Not much to do expect for the fountains and some cafes. However, it is the start of a tour around the old city in a train om wheels. It costed us two euro p.p. and was a nice way of getting to know the area, especially in rain. Expect only portugese explanations

Great fountain and open space. Nice for wandering. We came here before dinner time and it was a bit chilly.
