About Braga

Braga is one of the youngest cities in Europe (considered the youngest city in Europe in 1989), making it a dynamic and energetic city. In the past 30 years, the district’s population has grown by over 25%. The district of Braga shows development and quality of life standards above the national average, only surpassed by the regions of Greater Porto and Greater Lisbon. There are plenty of ratios and statistics to support this. Allied with that is its strategic geographical position which make this Portuguese district one of the most appealing regions for investment.​

Braga also offers unique cultural and leisure opportunities with its nightlife, cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, museums and art galleries. It is a city full of culture and traditions, where history and religion coexist side by side with the technology industry and academic life.

Braga is one of the oldest Portuguese cities, as well as one of the oldest Christian cities in the world. It was founded in Roman times, under the name of Bracara Augusta and, today, it boasts 2000 years of history as a city. Located in the north of Portugal, in the Cávado Valley, Braga has roughly 174,000 inhabitants. It is the centre of the Great Metropolitan Area of Minho (GAM), which has a total of approximately 800,000 inhabitants.

When Portugal as a country was constituted, Braga was its only city. Braga is one of the oldest Portuguese cities, founded in Roman times, under the name of Bracara Augusta. It boasts 2000 years of history as a city. It is also one of the oldest Christian cities in the world. Remains of settlement in Braga date back thousands of years, certified as belonging to the Bronze Age.

Thus, the history of Braga can be divided in three periods: pre-history, Bracara Augusta and Braga.
