Rua do Souto located in Braga Portugal, is a collection of interesting stores and restaurants in the shopping district. It is a mostly pedestrian area with vehicles not allowed except for the odd one making a delivery.

The Rua do Souto is the main road in Braga, Portugal to find restaurants, cafes, and retail shops. This main roadway is only for pedestrians and connects the Arco with the Praca Republica. Overall, the Rua do Souto is a pleasant street to wander.
