Braga is known for its remarkable beauty and vibrant culture. The city combines tradition with innovation, and this meeting of old and new defines modern life in Braga.
The green hills of the Minho region set an idyllic backdrop for the architectural details and manicured gardens of the historic city center, established over 2000 years ago as the Roman stronghold Bracara Augusta. Today, groups of students, families and visitors accompany baroque statues in cobblestone squares to take in the numerous cultural events that bring the city to life throughout the year.
Visiting Braga can feel like time travel within the comfort of our modern world. The historic center, defined by a traditional aesthetic, lives hand in hand with the youth and entrepreneurs attracted by the universities, international scientific laboratories and thriving technological industries.
We look forward to giving a warm welcome to all visitors who come to learn first-hand why Braga was voted Best European Destination. See you soon!
