Not far from Braga, on the mountain, there is one of the main holy places of Portugal - Bom Jesus do Monte. This place has attracted pilgrims since the 14th century, when the first chapel was built.

Bus stops near the lower station of the funicular. Since we are not pilgrims but tourists, it is better to use it and get to the top. Funicular appeared in 1882 and became the first one in the Iberian Peninsula.

Between the stairs and the bus stop is a picturesque zigzag road in the woods. On the turns stand small chapels ("Chapels of Christ's Passion"), which look very picturesque.
