Braga was a pleasant surprise generally, this parca contributed . Early spring , hot sun, the fountains and spring flowers were a delight. Coloured lights in the fountain at night added to a balmy, evening of dining and vinho verde.

This is certainly the best place for tourists in Braga. So much stuff to visit, eat, shop in such a small radius,

This is just simply the center of gravity of Braga. Go here, sit down and sip on a glass of wine at Cafeteria Brasiliana. Enjoy the crowd of people passing by. Relax. Feel energized. Get in the mood. Enjoy. A place near heaven - and tons of churches around.

This is the central part of town and no matter what, you will pass it in your travels. It is in the pedestrian area, surrounded by shops and cafes.

It is not a good place to go in cold seasons. Sometimes, there is a fair where you can buy some handcraft things what can be interesting. But no more than this.

There is not much to say about this place, except that it is a nice place to spend a few moments. At the end of the day, it is a fountain… as so many of them around the world. There is nothing to write home about… but a pleasant enough time to walk around, and suck in the atmosphere. OK…... More
