Overview

These two cities are perhaps the most historical ones in Portugal!

Braga has roots from the ancient roman empire, and its importance on the region is well present in visible remains on the centre and surroundings. Over the last millennium the city became the most important reference for the catholic religion. It served for headquarter of archbishops, and has (probably) the most beautiful cathedral in Portugal. Adding to the religiosity and coutless set of churches, the city has 2 sanctuaries on the highest part, that are with no doubt, the most pleasant places to visit on the region.
