When we saw the pictures of Bom Jesus do Monte in a brochure in his van, we asked Daniel of Daniel Travel, who was taking us to Porto for a visit, to also take us to Braga. Some of us could not do the steep steps down to the lowest steps to take great pictures, so Daniel drove us to... More

If you are in Braga, you must visit. It's as simple as this. Whoever you are, you will not regret. Just go there.

How beautiful! The location has stunning views in the valley. The sculptures were outstanding and very meaningful. This was a stop on a long trip. Be sure to take the tram down the hill.

This Monastery is incredible. It's huge and allow us to watch the best sunset ever. It has a lot of stairs, but if you go with time, it's a pleasure activity.

Probably good to say that you have been there and seen it but there are other places in the world that have vernacular railways and sell extremely expensive coffee.

This is a beautiful, beautiful old Monastery & Basilica. We only toured the outside because of a time constraint but it was wonderful to see the lovely gardens anyway. The lawn and formal gardens are immaculate. They are professionally designed and perfectly displayed. Even in September when we were there, the flowers were so beautiful. The view from up there...

If you love baroque and it's theatrical scenery, you'll love the pilgrimage temple and the steps that lead to Bom Jesus Do Monte. Set in a beautiful landscape with great views this place is iconic, and it deserves a relaxed visit. If you're not fit enough or you're not in pilgrimage, better take the cable car up then walk down... More

We went during our holiday to the Bom Jesus. This is one of the beauties in Northern Portugal. On a beautifull day this is a great place to enjoy and relax. The other maybe not so famous is the Gravity Road, search on the internet and you will find more info.

Thank Bernhard D
