Castelo de Lanhoso

Reviewed By makakito - Lisbon, Portugal

This is a unique place, in top of a natural huge stone. You also got the statue of virgin Mary protecting the city, a restaurant/coffee shop, an old church, and an old (small castle). We could enter the castle, but not the main tower, which was supposed to be open that day. The tower says in Portuguese it is closed 2 days of the week, Tuesday I think, and Wednesday, and then in English Tuesday and Thursdays, which is confusing at best, however it was a Friday and it was closed too. Nevertheless, a place worthy a visit if you are driving nearby Braga.

Bom Jesus do Monte

Reviewed By simmondsi - Darmstadt, Germany

We took the funicular up, which was fun (tip: stand outside the cabin at the front) but the church itself was nothing special. View is far but mostly of the modern part of Braga with high-rises, so disappointing. Still, the view upwards of the staircases is impressive.

Ancient pilgrimage place devoted to the founder of Benedictine congregation. Lots of devoted visit asking for health miracles. Despite the religious leit motiv it is a place with a superb view. Worth the visit if near by. Very popular and folk market too.

Everything is taken care for you to have fun. Go there with the kids and have fun :)
The staff has always been attentive and well prepared from check in to farewell. Safety is a point of honor in all activities and whenever possible the instructors have a little funny moment.
small tip: bring gloves if you're planning to do the suspended Bridges.
The park is in a fantastic location!

Fluvial Beach of Verim

Reviewed By AnabelaDantas - Porto, Portugal

Local simpático que nos permitiu passar um dia super agradável. A água é muito quentinha e estava sinceramente menos gente do que estava à espera para um domingo. Dispõe de muita sombra e de várias zona de banho vigiadas. Aconselho o uso de sandálias próprias para água, só por uma questão de comodidade.O local é simpático e tem condições agradáveis, apesar de não ser completamente plano, o que condiciona por vezes o conforto quando se está nas toalhas. Mas chegando-se cedo consegue-se um bom lugar. O Café devia melhorar as condições e a oferta.
Um domingo excelente passado em família. Recomendo.
