A JOURNEY THROUGH THE HISTORY
OF THE TRADITIONAL TO THE MODERN
As one of the most ancient cities in the country, of over 2,000 years, Braga combines the traditional and the modern to perfection, providing a journey through history and architecture of various eras. In this northern city of Portugal, the heart of the Minho region, one may observe remains of Roman times (when it was called Bracara Augusta, honoring emperor Augustus). But one may also visit the country’s first Cathedral, which was ordered to be built in the twelfth century. Or visit the municipal stadium of Braga, designed by Eduardo Souto Moura, an architect distinguished with the Pritzker Prize in 2011.
