Portugal third day, Braga, the town of a prayer.

On 31,07,2015
I had to change the hostel again as the hostel I stayed last night was full. So I moved to the next hostel again carrying heavy luggages and sweating a lot. What a hard journey!!
As soon as I put the luggage in the hostel, I headed for the town Braga.
The stuff of the hostel I stayed last night recommended.
Braga isn’t so big town and not well known , nonetheless ,there are many historical architecture such as church . The oldest cathedral in Portugal is also situated here in Braga.
It flourished as a holy city representatives Portugal between medieval period and around 18century.

When I arrived in Braga, there were little to see around there and I didn’t know where should I go.
Anyway, I bought just a bread and cheese in the supermarket and ate them in a cafe and satisfied my appetite just to explore. Unluckily as my bag was stolen in Spain, I had to survive with small money and had no choice so much to eat at this time.

In a meanwhile, I found a old city. There were many tasteful architectures.

Cathedral of the old city centered on Prada,There is the coffin of the former bishop inside. This is not luxuary,this is more quite and has a holy atmosphere.

We can find many churches everywhere in Braga.
Many cute houses, I like this place!

The square of Republican, This is developed as a park. Many people relax here.

As the Braga is small, we can see around in half a day. And we can  go to Braga in an about hour by bus or train from Porto. I recommend visiting here if you’d come to Porto. The quite and  tasteful atmosphere must fascinate you little by little.

      • . Using static-looking URLs can help you avoid changing URLs if you switch technologies or CMSs. For example, all the poor, poor folks using Drupal are now stuck forever (married?) to URLs with “node” in them. (Sorry Drupal users, but you really do have to maintain those URLs for eternity!)You should’ve said, “Staitc-looking URLs are great IF you don’t use them for app calls where GET parameters would be more appropriate AND you remember that URLs are a UI!”

  2. J'adore cette façon de porter le manteau (ou n'importe quelle veste…) Je trouve ça classe, chic. Moi j'ai du mal, car je ne marche pas, je cours! Alors j'ai un peu de mal à retenir l'imper, le sac etc… Mais quand j'arrive à marcher trnemuillaqent (sur 10 mètres!) j'adore faire ça. Et moi aussi j'entends ma Mamie me murmurer "couvre toi tu vas prendre froid". ❤
