Bom Jesus de Monte, Braga

When the rain finally stopped, my colleagues and I went to visit probably the main sightseeing of Braga – Bom Jesus de Monte.  This sanctuary the way it is now was built in 1722 in Baroque style although the first chapels dated back to the 14th century.

When you approach the mountain where the sanctuary is located, the first thing you see is the incredibly beautiful stairs, leading up to heaven.
