Create an itinerary including Se de Braga
One of the most significant sites in the city, Se de Braga is renowned for its artistic contributions and historical importance. Though the original structure was built in the 12th century, the cathedral has been greatly changed since. Today, you will see the church's combination of Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, and Baroque styles. View the main chapel of the apse, built by architect Joao de Castilho in 1509, as well as the striking towers and the Madonna statue, which was created in the early 1500s as well. Step inside, walk through the entrance gallery, take in the cathedral's gorgeous interiors, and pay a visit to the Cathedral Treasure, a museum of precious, sacred art. With our custom trip planner, Braga attractions like Se de Braga can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This church is beautiful and unique in its history. It is the oldest cathedral in Portugal, being founded even before the establishment of Portugal as a country. You can find important tombs inside...

  • Braga is by far my favorite city in Portugal...From history to local culture...it offers something for everyone...Peaceful setting to creative vibrant community...I´ve been a fan from the get go...Resident and supporter of the economy of Portugal since 2016
  • Nice cathedral. Guided tour is available in English as well. Only in 5 euro. There is mummified body of archbishop. Could be a bit scary to see
