    Majestic site, loaded with religious significance but which can be visited by all who value monuments with history. Who goes to the Bom Jesus can only climb a few more metres to the top of Mount to meet this fantastic site

    From the outside the building is more beautiful than the neighboring sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte. Perfect for end of the day and see the stairs from sunset, the change of the colors of the sky and the lighting of the lights of the city

    For those who are visiting Barnes got to know this site, for those who want to stay there a little longer with the hotel, and if you also want to have something to remind you that you were there or give a small gift to someone, there's the gift shop. From there you can see the entire city not to mention that you have a good space to explore.

  • I was on a pilgrimage to see O.L of Lourdes and O.L. of Fatima. I was wondering which of the two I would come to have a bigger attraction to, but when I went to the shrine of O.L. Sameiro. I didn't know anything about her and didn't give her much attention. My big mistake. After returning home I realised that she was calling out to me. I feel embarrassed by my lack of knowledge. I will do more research. Thank you Jesus.
  • If you're in Braga, you can't miss this sanctuary, on the highest viewpoint above the city. Great views all around!
  • Breathtaking views, quiet, and beautiful. Definitely a spiritual experience.
  • Excellent view from the city when it is not foggy. YOu can have the same view from Bom Jesus.
  • Incredible view of Braga. In a clear day you can even see the sea.

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.
