Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you visit the amazing Bom Jesus do Monte, slightly outside the city, during your stay.

Liked: The main old town area of Braga is very pretty, especially the Santa Barbara garden. Best of all though, the amazing Bom Jesus do Monte is located very close to the city.

Disliked: No.

Customer Travel Tip: Go to Bom Jesus do Monte. The sightseeing is incredible. And you have to go out at the university of Minho area, where you can have a lot of fun without paying much for it.

Liked: The beer is really cheap, and you can have a lot of fun with the university students at bars and pubs at night.

Disliked: Public transportation takes too long to arrive the bus stops.

Customer Travel Tip: You have to include it in the trip around Portugal, eventhough it us not so famous.

Liked: Eventhough itis high up in the north and not so known as other cities, it has much tooffer. It is big enough to offer much, but again small enough to feel cosy and as home.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit! And stay longer than a day passing through. Well worth a few days at least. Eat out a lot, visit everything and just soak up the atmosphere. Also make sure you visit the national park.

Liked: The churches, the cafes, the surrounding national park. The warmth of the people and the ambience.

Disliked: That I had to leave.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: It is a great central place to visit the north, I did day trips to Guimaraes and Viana do castelo during my stay there. Since the hostel is near the bus station, it's easy and fast to get to the small cities in northern Portugal from Braga. Train station is not too far, about 15 minutes away, so it is also a good way to travel further north. A lot of people also go hicking in Geres national park!

Liked: It's a cute city, one or two days to explore it is enough

Disliked: nothing

Customer Travel Tip: If you could, try staying in Braga over a Saturday night - you'll discover why Braga is called the City of Bells.

Liked: We had a lot of fun and laughter trying to communicate with the locals - be it the bus driver, the shop owners, the cafes, or the kind people who managed to direct us in the right way. Even when we do not share a common language the residents of Braga gave me one of the best times in my travel history.
