"Braga District" Distrito de Braga by solopes

Distrito de Braga Travel Guide: 411 reviews and 1,150 photos

In the extreme north of Portugal the coast is called "Costa verde (green coast)", covering several districts that show all gradients of green in rolling hills, mountains and fertile valleys, where agriculture thrives due to heavy rainfall that makes this the greenest zone in Portugal. The coastline has unpolluted beaches of rough and cold waters, but the highlights are in the countryside, with great mansions amidst vineyards and forests of pines or oaks.

The main cities in the district are Braga (with its barroque churches, parks and the sanctuary of Bom Jesus), and Guimarães (the birthplace of the nation),

The Peneda-Gerês National Park, with its wild, dramatic scenery and a rich variety of flora and fauna, including some wild "garranos".

My preferences:

*** Not to be missed:

Braga
Guimaraes


** Very interesting:
Geres
Barcelos
Esposende


* Interesting:
Vila Nova de Famalicão
