Braga Cathedral / Sé de Braga

The city of Braga is Portugal’s most important religious centre – you’ll be amazed at the number of churches and how close they are to one another – spend some time here and soon you’ll notice the weight of ecclesiastical power even today, expressed  through many religious festivities.
Braga Cathedral – Sé de Braga can be reached walking along the city’s large pedrestrian area – the monument presents different architectural styles – Romanic, Manueline and Baroque – of diversified historical periods.
Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to listen to one of its two impressive Baroque organs, which are in front of the High Choir, one of them has 2400 pipes, some immersed in water.
