While staying at the Hotel do Elevador you can always count on being surrounded by fabulous marks of Braga’s strong historical and religious background.

Located on a hilltop just a short distance from Braga’s city centre, the Hotel do Elevador is set in a prestigious place of its own - the Bom Jesus Natural Park. Aside from the picturesque gardens that fulfil the area, guests located in the Hotel do Elevador are just a step away from its famous Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary.

The sanctuary is one of Braga’s main attractions and has been an appealing pilgrimage site for tourists due to its religious association. Possessing a long staircase to get to the church, all of the elements integrated in this unique structure have become emblematic to its theme.

However, in this area getting to the city will be just a quick funicular ride away. Once in the city centre, a number of sites and monuments, as well as traditional regional cuisine-serving restaurants may be found. Two references are the Astoria Café and the Viana Café - two coffee shops located just within the Praça da República, Braga’s main square.

The major street shop (nowadays mostly selling religious artefacts) is named the Rua Diogo de Sousa and is known to have once been the busiest commercial street in the city.

Besides the Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary, a number of important sites not to miss out on may be found in town. Be sure to appreciate the Porta Nova Arch, an arch that leads you into the city, together with the gorgeous Tibaes Monastery.

Also, the Sé Braga Cathedral is another of Braga’s major landmarks, along with its esteemed Sacred Arts Museum. The ancient Idolo fountain and the remarkable Biscainhos Palace along with its breathtaking garden and museum, are also fabulous historical vestiges set in this city.

Nevertheless, Braga is filled with numerous places to see and places to go. Be sure to make this an exciting and fulfilled experience while on your holiday.

The Francisco Sá Carneiro airport in Porto is the closest to the Hotel do Elevador. All of Braga’s urban transportation can be easily accessed in the centre of town.
