The Best Places In Braga For Your Family This Summer

  • Lindoso

Overcast by the remains of an ancient castle, Lindoso is a charming village best known for an extensive collection of espigueiros in a semblance of tombs; the stone granaries.

These grain storages, which are topped off with beautification crosses, are lifted off the floor on legs made of granite and possess sidewalls with slots in them.

You can count about 50 of these 19th-century silos scattered on the slopes underneath the castle walls.


  • Museu de Arte Sacra (Museum of Sacred Art)

Catch the thrill of the extensive collection of religious artworks and unique ecclesiastical gems at the museum of sacred heart. This place is brimming with a combination of ancient statues, ornate carvings,  and other permanent exhibits like the beautiful Azulejo ties of 18 and 19 centuries.


  • Ponte de Lima

This a gem by the riverside that took its name from the Roman bridge that spread over the Lima River.

Standing on this bridge, one gets a panoramic view of The 15th-century church of Santo António. You’ll see the reflection of its belltower cast over the still waters and a network of ancient cobbled streets that brings a rustic charm to the old town.

There is a huge traditional market dating back to the 12th century where you can explore with your family.
