Lovely exterior is supplemented by an interesting exhibition inside with lots of detail on the palace which was great value for money (it cost me 1 euro as I am a student).

It is a baroque building very close to the city centre, with a beautiful facade. Not much more to be said about it though

The outside is spectacular, but it is not worth going inside, there are a few rooms all with church-related artefacts.

It's a beautiful edifice and pictures don't do it justice. Besides it's pretty difficult to catch a moment without a car or pedestrian spoiling the view.

Another great example of baroque in Braga: nice mix of grey and blue. Check opening times before going there.

Palácio do Raio, who is also referred as “Casa do Mexicano”, is located in the Rua do Raio, no. 400, in the parish of São José de São Lázaro. It is one of the most notable buildings of civil architecture in the city, in the Baroque style of João. as a whole, giving priority to the most unprotected and promoting quality of life, assuming the commitment to support the most disadvantaged in the practice of the 14 Works of Mercy.

An interesting and attractive building. Whilst we had not originally expected to enjoy the interior exhibitions these did help put some of the history of the city into perspective. Well labelled - with English captions.
