“Dar and difficult to get there... Even with GPS”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We got lost for 15 or 20 minutes even though we has a GPS that had a wrong location.

We visited this attraction in a rainy day so not fair to say it was not worth it, but it did not really surprised me. If you are in Town you should make the visit, if not I would rather recommend you visit the Convent of Jesus Christ at Tomar which is located 100 miles from Vila Real.

“Awe-inspiring”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

The cathedral itself and the view from the hill are really worth it!
Plus, the ascent is quite pretty, once you've walked through the outer district of Braga.

“Outstanding religious site at Braga”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

The chapels that compose the stations of the Cross along the huge stairway that leads to the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus is undoubtedly one of the best sites to be visited at Braga, especially for those who are catholic, as climbing the steps create a sensation of going towards God.

“Extra-ordinary religious location!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Although similar to the church in Lamego in the Douro Valley, Bon Jusus is more complex and a large site with hotels near by (which do not interfear with the experience.

The tram is unique-watch the "hydrolic" brake fill-up. The ride up or down is about 5 minutes. Makes sense if you are going to walk all the way down to ride up on the tram.

If walking down to the observation level just past the overpass, note each fountain for its uniqueness. From that level you can get the photo used in the brochures.

This is a site that just needs wandering. Enjoy!

“Pleasant enough”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We were staying at a hotel near the top and walked down, taking the elevado back up. The stone work is a bit deteriorated, maintenance must be awesomely expensive. The church is pleasant and the walk, too.
