Referred to as the Portuguese Rome for its number churches, Braga represents an old town that today is the country's third-largest city. Situated in northwest Portugal, Braga boasts many narrow pedestrian streets, plazas, and spiritual pilgrimage destinations.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Amorosa Beach and Mindelo Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bom Jesus do Monte and Guimaraes Castle. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Braga: Pinhao (The Douro Valley & Quinta do Bomfim), Viana do Castelo (Praia do Cabedelo, O Navio Gil Eannes, & more) and Cabril Eco Rural (in Cabril). Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring nature at Peneda-Geres National Park. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Se de Braga, take some stellar pictures from Elevador do Bom Jesus do Monte, admire the landmark architecture of Paco dos Duques de Braganca, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Centro Historico de Guimaraes.
