Of course, it's a must-do, you already know that. You can catch a bus up - the ticket is valid for 90 minutes. If you're within this time, you can catch it back down without paying again (see my photo). The steps up aren't that...More

This attraction has an amazing view over Braga. From the city center is the Bus nr. 2 going up (last stop if the line is the teleferico), cost is 3.30 € for two. Up there you can take the teleferico or take the stairs. I...More

What a gem. Get your walking/running/stepmaster shoes on and really go for the whole journey. Amazing sunset views back out across to the Atlantic coastline.

Think it’s the Roman soldier who pierced JC with a spear & later converted to Christianity. Not 100% sure.
