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.

Se de Braga reviews
Nice architecture. This church is in a street that is usually full of restaurants and shops but luckilñy almost everything was closed when i visited. more »
You are about to visit the oldest Roman Catholic Cathedral Church in Portugal! The "Sé Catedral de Braga" dates from the 11th century and has seen, along the years, many additions and restorations... 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
