Region of Stunning Landscapes, Rich History
and Unique Gastronomy

Minho offers the best of Portugal, a region marked by the green of the land and the blue of the sea, where traditions have been preserved and natural landscapes maintained. This is the birthplace of the Portuguese kingdom, and it would be hard to find better preserved landmarks than those that exist in the beautiful cities of Minho.

BRAGA

Located in the lower Minho, the “Portuguese Rome” was an ancient Roman city called Bracara Augusta, which despite being very old, is also very young.

Braga does not leave anyone indifferent to your visit, its mountains, distinctive churches, 18th century houses, historic sites and the devotion of its population to all the architectural and religious heritage, make a visit to Braga a trip back in time within modernity.
