Know More about this tour

Built more than 2,000 years ago, Bracara Augusta was, as the name indicates, founded by Augustus; it was located on one of the main Roman roads in the Iberian Peninsula, since it was the administrative seat of the Empire, and later given the status of capital of the Roman province of Gallaecia, present-day Galicia, by Emperor Caracalla. The Braga Diocese is the oldest in Portugal and, in the Middle Ages, the city even competed with Santiago de Compostela in power and importance. One of the Camios de Santiago passed through here, when this pilgrimage cult grew with the Christian reconquest and the foundation of Portugal.

Bragas Cathedral is also the oldest in the country and was built in the 12th century by the parents of Portugals first King, D. Henrique and D. Teresa, who are buried there. Braga is to this day one of the countrys main religious centres, having the Holy Week Celebrations and the So Joo Festival as the highlights in its liturgical and tourist calendar.

You will enjoy the morning or afternoon with a local guide who will let you know the history of Braga and the most importante aspects of the Portuguese Culture. You will visit:

- S Cathedral of Braga
- The Bom Jesus Sanctuary
- Sameiro Sanctuary
