Braga

Located in the far north of Portugal, at the heart of the Minho region, lies the ancient city of Braga. The country’s oldest city, Braga, is steeped in history, tradition and ancient culture, all of which merge seemingly effortlessly into the contemporary world of a modern-day university-city and thriving tourist destination.

Braga was once an important metropolis at the heart of the Roman Empire and there are many reminders of this golden era – unexpectedly discovered, beautifully restored and lovingly maintained by the citizens of this unique city.

Here, Roman remains are found juxtaposed among Baroque palaces, medieval churches and 18th-century townhouses, a reminder at every turn of the rich cultural heritage of Braga.
