“Truly unbelievable organ loft area!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

We have been in hundreds of churches world-wide, but NO church has an organ loft equal to this church's. We just stood and starred as no photos can be taken.

The church is a complex layout of areas with various functions. There are two entries.

“Fantasic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Beautiful place. The organs are the loveliest I have ever seen. I could look at them for hours.The highlight was when someone started to play the organs. The feeling was indescribable. Gorgeous.

“There's a reason Braga's known for its churches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Both the museum (which we saw first) and the cathedral are quite impressive. Unfortunately no photos even when there's no service. Well worth a visit if you're in town, not so much as a special trip.

“heritage of Braga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

The grand monument of medieval, retained in original plan from 11 century, in very good condition. This Cathedral is not look as any one other, so worst to visit it. It is very nice interior and centuries of history atmosphere.

“Cathedral located out of the center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Somehow it is strange, that you have to go around the cathedral (from the backside the church is hardly recognized as a cathedral) coming from the center of Braga to find the front side of Se Primaz.
