Free Walking Tour of Braga

23 reviews | 217 travellers
Ciudad interesante, con muchas iglesias pero poca historia que contar. El guía hizo muy ameno el tour y nos reímos mucho pero en ocasiones nos costaba seguirle la conversación ya que hablaba un poco rápido y había palabras que decía en otros idiomas. Sin embargo, su alegría y simpatía eran contagiosas y disfrutamos mucho de la visita.

Free Walking Tour of Braga

At the chosen time you'll meet your guide at the Arco da Porta Nova - the Baroque and Neoclassical arch in the very centre of Braga, designed by André Soares in the 1700s. Here you'll meet your local guide, and set off to discover "The Portuguese Rome" - the most important town in the northern region bearing the same name!

Throughout the tour, your guide will bring to life the history, culture, and traditions of Braga. We'll set off towards the Sé Cathedral - a mixture of 15th century gothic and 17th-century baroque styles, and a national monument since 1910. Then highlights include the Episcopal Palace, with a history stretching back to the 4th century and the beautiful adjoining Santa Barbara Gardens, and the Theatre Circo, known for its architecture and stunning interior.

Once you've passed by the Praça da República, Avenida da Liberdade, and Rua do Raio (to name a just a few stops), over the course of two and a half hours you'll have a whole new insight on Braga and its history!
