Braga District

Castles · Historic Walking Areas · Churches
For centuries, Braga District served as a home away from home for the Roman, Visigoth, and Moorish invaders of Portugal. Conquered by the Christians in the 11th century, the region drew attention with its elaborate religious festivals, attracting pilgrims from all over the country. Today, nearly every corner of this compact district in the far north of Portugal boasts a historical church, palace, fountain, or garden, reminding visitors of the area's rich cultural and architectural heritage. The city of Braga, once the capital of the Roman province Gallaecia, contains the country's oldest cathedral. Begun over a thousand years ago, this imposing structure is the district's biggest tourist attraction, perplexing architecture buffs with its striking collage of different building styles. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Braga District and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
