Home The Region Municipalities Leisure Tradition Eating out? Sleeping out?

Braga, city of multiple and peculiar habits, simultaneously asserts itself as historical and modern, where innovation and tradition are beautifully united. Secular city with deeply rooted religious customs, Braga has, in its numerous baroque churches with rich detailed carvings, the ex-libris of a place where festivities like Holy Week or S. João attract thousands of visitors. Its gastronomy – Codfish “à Narcisa”, meat pies and “Abade de Priscos” pudding – as well as handcraft – sacred art, “farricocos” and string musical instruments – are excellent tourist products and just as equally sought out. Braga is increasingly becoming a city of knowledge around its university and research centres, together with a thriving commerce and services sector, a lively nightlife in the historic centre, many cultural spaces and an always inviting schedule of shows and events.
