Ruas, ruelas, becos, vielas, travessas e praças in Braga

Wandering across Braga will inevitably lead us through streets, alleys, alleyways, lanes, bystreets and squares – their names, Braga is a religious centre, honour almost every saint, bishop, archbishop or clergyman who somehow deserved such distinction.

Of course the most interesting ones aren’t in such category: Rua do Matadouro / Slaughterhouse Street and Rua do Raio / Thunderbolt Street are certainly in the top-ten, many of them had their names changed, having lost their link to the past, the very first reason for their names!

Here some more imaginative examples: Rua do Pulo / Jump Street ; Rua do Sol / Sun Street; Travessa da Taxa / Tax Lane; Rua dos Carinhos / Caresses Street
