“please check out the relics”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

this SE is wonderful, dark and serene. But best of all is the area of the church with the relics. Boxes of beatified bones beckon!

“Beautiful Cathedral Full of History”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We were here recently during a road trip through Braga and had read about the Cathedral. We arrived Sunday morning, probably not the best time to be a tourist in a big church. But we were blown away by the pomp and circumstance. There were medieval guards in full regalia escorting people to pews. The organ music was wonderful - what acoustics! They don't allow photos.

“Sé de Braga”
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.
