This place is one of the most iconic images of the whole country, reproduced so many times in so many places. Just for that it deserves a visit. You´ll need a car to get there as it´s very close to Braga but I guess it...More

It is really a fun thing to visit Bom Jesus. Apart from the religieus history and the pelgrim spot, the park around is beautiful situated. On top of the hill there is a small artifical lake where you can rent a Rowing boat..

Remarkable collection of Catholic artwork, reliquaries, and dioramas on a scenic mountain above Braga.

Parked at the top and had a picnic. Then took the lift down and walked up the steps. The climb starts down in the woodland with shade from the trees. The steps are wide and shallow so not difficult. Pleasant cafe on cliff top terrace...More
