Beautiful place, must visit, but to many dogs barking, stupid local dog owners take their dogs to visit the monuments... taking away the peace and beauty of the place, could be better maintained.

No doubt it is mentioned in every tourist book and guide, this is a must see! If it is a good day, stay for the sunset, you would love it.

Took a day trip to Braga, while visiting Porto. This is an amazing religious sanctuary, the church was being renovated during my visit in October. But honestly I came for the beautiful stairs and the beautiful views of Braga. I parked my car uphill near...More

An absolutely amazing tribute to Christianity. The stonework is gorgeous and the pilgrimage is humbling. You need to be in pretty good shape to climb the stairs, but the tour guide will drive you to the top if it is not possible for you to...More

What a fantastic complex to visit, starting with a nice climb up the stairs (and there’s a few of them) you reach this brilliantly designed structure with statues all around. Once you get near the top all statues align with the church it’s brilliant. Up...More
