Braga Cultural Trip

After the mayor's visit to Braga in the morning, we visited the historical and cultural places in the city of Braga.

Braga is a city and a municipality capital of the northwestern Portuguese district of Braga and of the historical and cultural Minho Province. The city has a resident population of 193,333 inhabitants (in 2021), representing the seventh largest municipality in Portugal. Its agglomerated urban area extends from the Cávado River to the Este River. It is the third-largest urban centre in Portugal (after Lisbon and Porto). It is host to the oldest Portuguese archdiocese, the Archdiocese of Braga of the Catholic Church and it is the seat of the Primacy of the Spains. The Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte is a Portuguese Catholic shrine in Tenões, outside the city of Braga, in northern Portugal. Its name means Good Jesus of the Mount. This sanctuary is a notable example of Christian pilgrimage site with a monumental, Baroque stairway that climbs 116 meters (381 feet). It is an important tourist attraction of Braga.
