Braga is a captivating city packed full of history and tradition situated in the northern part of Portugal lying between mountains, forests, valleys, and green fields and has a lot to offer its visitors. Known as the “Portuguese Rome” for its numerous squares, churches and chapels, Braga was the largest and most important city in the Roman Empire times and recently has been named European Youth Capital for its young and entrepreneurial vibe.

Braga is an exciting city for architecture and history lovers. Cute cobbled streets and alleyways leading to impressive squares and plazas makes it fun and easy to explore Braga on foot.

And for a bit of change of scenery if you’re looking to get out of the city for a while, be sure to visit the fascinating and vibrant sea-side city Porto, the second largest city in Portugal, just 40 min away by car, where there is no shortage of sights, attractions and foods to delight you.
