Cathedral of Braga

Located in the historic centre of the city of Braga, this church is considered one of the most important Romanesque Roman Catholic constructions in Portugal.

Here, you will find the tombs of Henrique de Borgonha and his wife Teresa de Leão, who were the counts of the Portucalense County and parents of King Afonso Henriques.

Its structure has undergone changes over the years since 1070 - by the time when it began to be built under the guidance of Bishop Pedro - and now has five chapels, two cloisters, a galilee, an apsidiole, an apse and the sacristy. This combination of constructions results in a mixture of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles. You can also visit the Treasure Museum and discover some pieces of art that are linked to the history of the church.
