We had a great time exploring the town ... and of course, the obligatory photo in front of the Braga sign.
Bom Jesus do Monte is a monumental hilltop sanctuary and a popular tourist attraction. The sanctuary is one of the most majestic sacred hills in Europe, dominated by a huge stairway that combines three architectural styles: Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical.
The site is also known for its zigzagging stairs dedicated to the five senses and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The sanctuary was built on a spot where hermits had settled from the 14th century onwards and has been rebuilt and extended over the centuries.
