"Bom Jesus, a place of pilgrimage" Bom Jesus by Martin_S.

Bom Jesus Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 37 photos

Undoubtedly the most photographed and well know feature of the Bom Jesus do Monte religious site is the zig-zag staircase of the five senses.
Winding its way up the last section toward the church, this staircase is actually traversed by believers on their hands and knees, not an easy feat even standing on your feet.

The church which stands atop the mountain which overlooks the city of Braga waits for the believers to arrive, welcoming them to the end of their self imposed ordeal.

Also at the top, just to the left of the church stands a small fountain and waterfall, portraying a type of grotto in stone and green.
