494 Reviews

Located in city of Braga in northern Portugal, the Braga Cathedral (Sé de Braga) is the oldest surviving church in Portugal and one of the most important monuments in the country. Built in a Burgundian Romanesque style between the 11th and 13th centuries, the cathedral provided architectural inspiration for many other churches and monasteries built in Portugal around the same time. Due to numerous modifications over the centuries, the cathedral today features a mix of styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline and Baroque.

The cathedral consists of several chapels built at different times. The parents of the first Portuguese were buried in the Chapel of the Kings in 1374 and the Chapel of the Glory was built in the mid-14th century as the final resting place of Archbishop Goncalo Pereira. Looks for the tomb guarded by siz life size stone lions and the painted Moorish geometrical designs. Also of note for visitors is the choir with sculptured gilt wood stalls built in the late 1730s and two gilt wood organs carved around the same time.

Don’t miss the Cathedral Museum, which includes elaborately carved 18th century choir stalls, the 10th century chalice of Saint Gerald, a 14th century statue of the Virgin Mary and an 11th century Arab ivory box.

Guimarães and Braga are two of the most emblematic cities in Portugal with a strong influence on the country's identity. Explore Guimarães, the city that is a national cradle, and be enchanted by the more religious and peaceful environment that Braga has to offer. We start with Guimarães. The city where Portugal was born is 40 minutes from Porto airport. It is the birthplace of the country because it is linked to the foundation of Portugal – and because it is believed that D. Afonso Henriques, the 1st King of Portugal, was born here. Classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this city seems to be part of the Middle Ages, by the way castles and mansions are framed in the urban mesh. A little further north is Braga, a city known for its heritage and strong religious character, which they also call the "city of archbishops". The more than 2,000 years of history makes it one of the oldest Portuguese cities and one of the most emblematic Christian cities in the world.

The North of Portugal is green, but it is also history, tradition and modernity. Minho is the river that borders the north of the country, but also the land of a wine that only has a green name and that remains in the memory of those who drink it. To discover this region is to get involved in Guimarães - a World Heritage city since 2001 - with its symbolic castle and cradle of Portugal, it is to walk its streets and feel the history. It is visiting Braga with its Cathedral, feeling that the Romans also passed through there and being part of a modern city. It means going up to the Church of Bom Jesus and allowing yourself to be spiritually involved in its chapels and gardens.
