“Sé de Braga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Braga is the city of churches, and the Sé is the ex libris. Very old, it's the subject of a portuguese phrase to emphasize age, stating that something or someone is "older than the Sé of Braga". Since it is surrounded by buildings, you may not notice that you are near the Sé until you're standing right in front of it. The inside and the tombs are great.

“A cathedral built along the centuries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

One of the values of the building is its characteristic of having gained different architectural contributions along the centuries, despite its romanesque origin.

“The only good thing about this town.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

The cathedral is beautiful, although slightly more austere than I was expecting. It's peaceful and obviously a great place to gather your thoughts. I didn't really think that much of Braga in general, so it was nice to find somewhere which was actually worth a visit for the day we were there.

“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.
