Bom Jesus

by Pitxu

Hi!

How much time I need to visit the Bom Jesus Santuary (I will go by car)?

Thank you

Re: Bom Jesus

The entire place is not big, an hour and a half will be more than enough to have a leisurely stroll in the grounds and to visit the chapel, even including going up to the sanctuary and back down by foot. There is a funicular which costs 1 euro (last time i was there a couple of years back) if climbing is not your thing, though i think it is the best way to approach the sanctuary.

Thank you.

So, perhaps the best option is stay at the city 1 hour and then go up by funicular and down on foot to see it better, isn't it?

Where can we park the car? Is it possible to leave it at the bottom of the sanctuary?

Total: 3 hours more or less?

The historic part of Braga is very interesting, so you should spend more time there -- visit especially the Se de Braga, the cathedral, which is the oldest in Portugal and has the most impressive pipe organ i've ever seen (and i have seen a lot!) You can leave the car below the sanctuary where the funicular begins -- there is a big space there. And indeed, the sanctuary is best seen from that level as those stairs actually constitute what is unique and memorable about this place.

I would recommend that you take the walk up the stairs even if it is a little hard mabye.
The place is more spectacular that way i think.

And if you feel like then there is a really nice hotel on the mountain right next to the church, which i thought was fantastic when i stayed there.

Travel Tips for Braga

Latin...

by AndyRG

The city has nice only-pedestrian streets, like this one near the Cathedral. You can admire Antigo Paco Episcopal, Palacio dos Biscainhos, the Garden of S. Barbara and, of course, the best touristic attraction, Bom Jesus. Braga has been an important trading center, it combines an old and a modern face at the same time...

Saint "João do Souto" church

by solopes

Right in the centre of city, this temple comes from the 12th century. Several times rebuilt (the last one in the 19th century) it lost most of its original elements, but still deserves to be visited.
