it s a reasonable place to visit, not spetacular. You can walk around and will be amazed by the ancient streets and local commerce. It is a great city to walk by, but this isn´t by far the greatest place to visit

I passed through the garden in a rainy day and sat in the nearby tea and coffee house Lusitana overlooking the garden. IN spring they must have tables outside, and serve nice meals for local ladies at lunch time

In the middle of the city center, it's a beautiful place to see, sit and take pictures. Flowers are renew all the time to make the garden always beautiful. The castle wall behind makes it even more beautiful.

This garden is just by the center, once you come passing by the arch you must pass by here. It's a beautiful garden, colorful and nicely preserved. A nice place to take some photos and keep going around the city

These manicured gardens are in the centre of town alongside part of the Archbishop's Palace and are quite lovely. A lovely photo opportunity.

We walked upon this incredibly manicured garden in the city centre. The perfume from the flowers is wonderful. The ancient arches in the back make a perfect frame for pictures.

This garden, placed in the middle of the historical center of Braga, is a nice place to take a break. The garden itself is very beautiful, and being in the middle of the city is itself an interesting visit. Although there is not much to...More
