Braga dates back to Celtic times and was an important Roman settlement, known in those times as “Braccara Augusta”. The ecclesiastical feel is emphasized by the town's main sites: The ornate Baroque church of Bom Jesus do Monte; 5km outside the center is still an important pilgrimage site; the sprawling Sé in the historic center of town is the oldest cathedral in Portugal; the huge, elaborate, medieval Archbishop's Palace.
A number of historic mansions are scattered around the town often serving as museums, such as the Palácio dos Biscaínhos, which houses a fine art collection.
