The Region of Braga contemplates 15 municipalities of Minho soil towards the south of Lima river, limited by a southern boundary from Vila do Conde to Celorico de Basto, closing here to the north, to Terras de Bouro.
It’s a multifaceted region with a littoral served by elegant and cosmopolitan beaches, in the jurisdiction of Esposende and Póvoa do Varzim, and is divided in half by the beautiful landscapes of rio Cávado. In the east we have the territory of the National Park of Peneda-Gerês, the owner of a unique biodiversity treasure in our country. Here we recommend the appealing walk starting in the Carniçada Barrage, passing by Caldas do Gerês – where the thermal baths still work – to Albufeira de Vilarinho das Furnas, until to get to Portela do Homem. Here, the most daring can start an athletic and heavenly hike to Mina dos Carris.
Religiousness and history are very visible when you’re visiting Braga, and among the several temples and buildings, you can’t miss the See, the Chapel of Our Lady of Conception, the Palace of Raio, the Sameiro and the indispensable Bom Jesus Sanctuary. The cult of nationality is pretty evident in Guimarães, with the Castel and the Ducal Palace, in a visit that wouldn’t be complete without a tour to the leafy Park of Penha.
