The church was very nice, but the grounds were breathtaking. A wonderful place to take a slow walk and enjoy the scenery. The walk down the hill was had some unique fountains showing the deadly sins with life size stations of the cross.

The church itself is undergoing uplifting work (2018). But the exterior is very interesting at every stage. Beautiful view of the city from a height. Different waterfalls/fountains. The rain had stopped just when we reached the site.

This is a must go attraction if you are in Braga. Located in the top of a hill, this church and the stairs leading to it is an outstanding piece of architecture. You can drive to the top or take the funicular.

The grounds were manicured to a perfection. The church was magnificent and with such detail. We rode the cable car up and walked down. We hired a cab from the Braga city center and cost less than 7 euros.

We didn't go into the church or arrive by the funicular railway but coming as we did up the magnificent staircase with rather odd fountain statues on each level (with water coming from eyes, ears and then mouth, I was worried what was coming next)...More
