Bom Jesus de Braga

Its famous stairway contains small hermitages that represent the steps of the Via Sacra, as well as several fountains, caves, gazebos and lakes that welcome tourists to a moment of relaxation and meditation.

Known as the postcard-perfect place of the city of Braga, the architectural complex of Bom Jesus do Monte is considered to be the most monumental sacred hill of Europe and one of the largest sacred routes, receiving thousands of pilgrims every year.

In order to get to the Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary at the top of the mountain and enjoy a fantastic view of the region, you have two options: walk up the steps or take one of the oldest operating water-balance funiculars in the world.
