One of the most significant sites in the city, Se de Braga is renowned for its artistic contributions and historical importance. Though the original structure was built in the 12th century, the cathedral has been greatly changed since. Today, you will see the church's combination of Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, and Baroque styles. View the main chapel of the apse, built by architect Joao de Castilho in 1509, as well as the striking towers and the Madonna statue, which was created in the early 1500s as well. Step inside, walk through the entrance gallery, take in the cathedral's gorgeous interiors, and pay a visit to the Cathedral Treasure, a museum of precious, sacred art.

Se de Braga Reviews
A Catedral mais antiga do que o próprio país que a abriga. Construída a partir de 1070.Grande privilégio e emoção, a serem repetidos , estar neste lugar na Semana Santa. Impressiona o barroco-barroco-... more »The cathedral is older than the country that houses it. Built from 1070. Great privilege and emotion, to be repeated, to be in this place in Holy Week. It impresses the baroque-baroque-tube organs. The gothic of some parts of the church, where Romanesque features predominate. Rsrrsrrss. Very interesting.
