Se de Braga, Braga

4.5
One of the most significant sites in the city, Se de Braga is renowned for its artistic contributions and historical importance. Though the original structure was built in the 12th century, the cathedral has been greatly changed since. Today, you will see the church's combination of Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, and Baroque styles. View the main chapel of the apse, built by architect Joao de Castilho in 1509, as well as the striking towers and the Madonna statue, which was created in the early 1500s as well. Step inside, walk through the entrance gallery, take in the cathedral's gorgeous interiors, and pay a visit to the Cathedral Treasure, a museum of precious, sacred art. With our custom trip planner, Braga attractions like Se de Braga can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is the oldest cathedral in Portugal. Personally I liked very little both inside and outside. Few things to see and the exhibition path badly organized. Only positive note is the beautiful main...  more »
  • It is a Se, but the Murials made of the blue & white tiles are beeuatiful, Especially the walls upstairs. The entrance fee is 2 Euro, so it's ok. There are many rooms to discover. So see for yourself.  more »

  • Amazing organ. Nice wall tiles and well carved statues inside. Only 2 euro to enter the main portion (an additional 2 to enter the museum). The light placement inside makes it very hard to take pictures without overexposing parts. Better to appreciate the beauty rather than try and capture it.
  • Very nice cathedral. Beautiful and very old! 4 euros gets you access to the cathedral, the museum, the chapels and the high choir (the latter with a guide) Definitely worth the visit
