"Bracara Augusta" Top 5 Page for this destination Braga by ncfg

Braga Travel Guide: 138 reviews and 384 photos

Braga or "Bracara Agusta" is a beautiful town on the north of Portugal; it is the capital of the Minho region. The Romans dedicated it to their Emperor and called it Bracara Augusta, making it their Galician head-quarters in 216 BC.

It is a town with lots of history and the youngest town in Portugal, where lives more young people, so you will find a great nightlife there ;-)

And if you are like me (crazy about football) you have the team Braga that is playing on the first league.

You will find lots of churches and on the hill Bom Jesus sanctuary and Sameiro Sanctuary.

Actually it's said that " while Porto town works, Coimbra town study Braga prays".
Don’t miss !

    Gostei muito de reler a tua página de Braga. Este Verão vou lá, a ver se é desta que vou ao Sameiro, que nunca fui, só ao Bom Jesus. É uma cidade muito bonita. :)

    Seen though your eyes Braga looks lovely. We visited on a quiet Sunday and much preffered Guimareaes, we will come back one day and explore more.
