What To Expect
Savor a delicious two-course lunch of fish or meat at an authentic Portuguese restaurant. Then, it’s onward to Braga, a city founded by the Romans. Today Braga is known as the City of Archbishops due to its multitude of religious monuments. When you reach Sameiro Sanctuary, listen to your guide illuminate its history as you gaze upon the church of Our Lady of Sameiro. Visit the Bom Jesus do Monte sanctuary in Tenões and walk up a monumental stairway to reach the pilgrimage church with panoramic views of Braga at the top.
Save some time to explore Braga’s historic downtown core, where Portugal’s oldest Christian city began. Admire the Baroque fountains, ruins, and buildings and monuments that pay tribute to Jesus Christ. Then continue back to Porto where you tour ends.
