Travel Tips for Braga

S. João Feast

by ncfg

If you happen to be in Braga in June, you may enjoy a week of celebrations in honour to Saint John ( Festas de São João). 24th June is the local holiday in Braga and the most important day of the feast.
The "cabeçudos" and "gigantones" (giant puppet heads worn by dancers) accompanied by the deafening beat of the drums welcomes the dawn visitors in the feasts.
I enjoyed the international meeting of Cabeçudos and Gigantones you can see some on my photo. :)
You will enjoy the amazing fireworks and lots of more, don't miss!

Bom Jesus - garden

by micas_pt

After climbing all those stairs it's time for a deserved rest. Just sit on one of the many wooden benches and enjoy the place. View, as i've said before, is beautiful. Place is so quiet (as long as you avoid weekends and holidays) and peaceful. Around the church there are beautiful and well-maintened gardens. Some of these gardens are part of the hotels. There are 2 hotels up here, both looking great. I didn't visit any of them, although. On one of the gardens you can see a cavern, still dropping water and growing. And a kind of wooden shelter above the cavern.

There are lots of pigeons around the church. As i was sitting on a bench and enjoying quietness of the place i noticed a mother and 2 young children feeding pigeons, and they were flying and playing around children - this is a very common scene in most cities.

Former archbishops' palace

by micas_pt

This building is "u" shapped and reflects several styles.

The "back" of the building is mainly Gothic and faces a garden - St Barbara Garden - a well preserved garden where young couples were spending some time. Braga is a student's city and so you can see many young people on the streets. Between the building and the garden you can see some archs that i found rather curious.

The front of the building forms a square with a nice fountain in the middle and this façade was built and renovated between the 14th and 18th centuries. The interior of this palace was completley destroyed by a fire in the 18th century.

Nowadays, this palace houses a public library, opened from Monday to Friday.
