Experience the Holy Week 2018 in the ancient city of Braga, in the region Porto and the North of Portugal

The Holy Week in Braga is without a doubt the most illustrious and most famous of all in Portugal. 

The city is decorated with motifs related to the occasion and the passos, street-side altars, are filled with flowers and lights, complementing the sumptuousness of the churches.

In Porto and the North of Portugal, in accordance with tradition, the Easter celebration of the Resurrection marks the end of Lent and a return to traditional gastronomy - such as oven-roasted kid, sponge cake, almonds and port wine.
