  • I recommend going here if you need a cool place to sit for a bit. It's only 1.85 euro. It is the remains of a pagan fountain that was once on site when the city was under Roman rule.  more »
  • This is a difference type of museum where they have built an elaborate building to house the old well and set up a video to show how they believe it was constructed and explain the script still eviden...  more »
  • Almost nothing to see, just some rocks with a little water. There is a short video about de fonte, but it is really like a 10 year old giving a presentation at school. Not worth the 1,85 euro entrance...  more »

  • Nice little place, which unfortunately is a bit hidden in plain sight. Being a local I was never quite sure where exactly the entrance was. It is well documented on the inside.
  • Is a stone engraving. To make matters worse they created a boring video of what it would be like and charge entry. Still sell the ticket of the Roman baths, which makes you create an expectation, but it is very dull. I gave it 2 stars because I felt sorry for giving 1, it's a milestone, but they didn't make him interesting.

  • The mall with your name marked in history. Quite well known. Here you can find several shops for your shopping, however, lacks the dimension that is not too large, just a little the range of shops.

  • Archeological site of great importance on the Roman occupation in the Northwest of the peninsula. Dedicated water supply by the inhabitants of Bracara Augusta. Very well done the level of information to visitors, with excellent media guides and information. Offers literature on paper in several languages about Bracara Augusta. Not to be missed!

  • Price, although cheap, disproportionate to the space. Faulty ventilation and noise nuisance. Despite being the only visitors the "Guide" was limited to put video and leaving ... Attendance at the "box office".

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.
