Holly Week

26 June, 2019

The Holy Week in Braga is one of the most memorable events of the year in the city, also known as “Portuguese Rome” by its deep Catholicism and immense religious architectural heritage associated with distinct eras.


The celebrations take place on the outcome of the Lenten season, at Easter, and it has been notable for the richness and versatility of the program, associated with multiple religious scenarios and a unique faith atmosphere. Attracted by these arguments, thousands of pilgrims and tourists from all over the country and north of Spain travel to Braga every year.


In early 2012, the Holy Weel has officially become the first religious event to merit the label “Statement for Tourism Interest” awarded by the Tourism Institute of Portugal. Cachapuz has been associated as a sponsor in this great event since 2011, by identifying itself with the values and considering this a weight event in the city dynamics and social awareness.
