Walk in and look up at the baroque art above. Very impressive. Braga is the baroque capital of the world. The cathedral is a grand example.

An amazing organ. Enjoyed our visit even though it was Sunday and there was a very long mass and baptism at the end. Pretty church.

It's not very large, but it's well decorated. The ceiling art is really nice. The organ is ornate and massive. There's an altar on the side that has azulejo tiling, which is really unique to Portugal. It's only 2 euro to get in.

Generally in Braga there are plenty of churches, 49 if I remember correctly, however; this one definitely worth a visit. Great structure.

So much in such small space. The cathedral has one of the most astonishing organs in Europe. However, we could not find out when the organ would be played. A treat in store.

We were on a walking tour of the town and went past the shops to the cathedral. Inside it was quite dark but the gold colour of the organ was impressive. Small charge to enter. Toilets were inside too.
