Sanctuary of Bom Jesus - Braga - Portugal

Uploaded: January 04, 2011 03:48:53


Obligatory reference of the Baroque in Europe, which shows the evolution of art itself-Braga, the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte, whose origins date back to the beginning of the fourteenth century, is considered the biggest tourist attraction-religious city and the region of Braga.
At this location, nature and art of Andrew Smith and Colonel Villa-Lobos combine to make him a true landmark of the city of archbishops.
The stairs zigzag with a chapel on each side and the Church at the top of the stairs are the points of greatest interest.
