The Arch of the New Gate (Portuguese: Arco da Porta Nova), is a Baroque and Neoclassical arch, designed by André Soares in the late 18th century, in the civil parish of Sé, municipality of Braga, in northern Portugal. The triumphal arch which decorates the western entrance to the medieval wall of the city, was opened in 1512 and traditionally used to present the city's keys to dignitaries and celebrities.For Arco da Porta Nova and beyond, use our Braga journey planner to get the most from your Braga vacation.
Arco da Porta Nova reviews
A simple but undoubtedly imposing structure that actually is well placed to be considered the gates to the old town. It seldom fails to provide great shots, so have your cameras ready when you visit!
A nice arch at the start of a cute walking street. Quite packed with tourists but you aren't harassed.
