A nice pedestrian street in the old town. Take a walk and be sure to also turn on other streets as well.

The Rua do Souto is the main road in Braga, Portugal to find restaurants, cafes, and retail shops. This main roadway is only for pedestrians and connects the Arco with the Praca Republica. Overall, the Rua do Souto is a pleasant street to wander.
