Braga : Michelin's recommendations
Braga is much marked by its history and its reputation is of a town mired in the past. Punctuated by churches and convents, today it is nevertheless the capital of Minho and a lively centre with several industries (leather, textiles, brick making, soap factories, steel mills). On Tuesdays, at the fairground, the fair of the yokes takes place.
