Rua do Souto | Braga

Rua do Souto  is the most traditional commercial street in Braga – dates back from 1466 – it headed to the ancient Braga castle – the tram lane no 1 went through it for decades – nowadays the street is closed to all traffic – people can stroll along it, and if they are into it – buy some religious souvenirs in one of its many shops.
A shop – Casa das Bananas – calls our attention, a closer look at its window intrigues us – dare to go inside and taste a Moscatel de Setúbal and a banana from Madeira – hours before Christmas Eve thousands of Bracarenses do exactly the same, making it almost impossible to enter this typical tavern.

      It’s really one of those things you should experience because it is authentic – and at Christmas it’s unbelievable how it’s become a celebration of thousands of bracarenses gathering to salute life… 😀

        Le foto e i video fanno venire voglia di visitare la città. La trovo molto bella e ospitale. Dico la verità!

          Sometimes we forget to stop a little and enjoy the places we have very close to us. I try to do this, at the same time I can learn a bit more about my place! 😀 Grazie mille!
