Portuguese Rome

Visit any or all of the city's famed cathedrals, including a hillside religious retreat and its recognizable Baroque staircase. Braga transforms after the sun goes down, when students from the nearby university flood the town's bars and cafes.

Where to stay in Braga

Make the most of thousands of years worth of history in Braga by staying in a hotel in the city's celebrated town core. An array of mid-range hotels are wedged in among its winding streets and secluded squares; many of these feature decent rates and easy walking access to nearly all of Braga's popular sights. You can also opt for an apartment rental or guesthouse, most of which are offered by local residents to visitors, to get a similar old-town experience with a bit more privacy and independence. For some peace and quiet away from the tourist crowds, reserve a spot at the nearby monastery.
