A walk to Bom Jesus using all your senses

This Journey has the best of both worlds: an easy walk to clear your mind from stress and worrying, combined with a visit of Bom Jesus, Braga’s and Portugal’s unique monument and Unesco World Heritage.

This mindful walk leads us from São Pedro de Este to the Portico, the main entrance of Bom Jesus. We climb the first part of the stairway (the part which is not visible from the main road and the city centre). You will get an impression of this monument in a way that is not described in any tourist brochure and using all your senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch).

Easy walking lets us see and experience things that you can see only when you slow down. At several points you will enjoy the amazing view over Braga and feel the effect it has on your mind and your body.

After climbing the second part of the stairs and arriving at the top of the stairway, I will show you the surrounding of the sanctuary and we will have some more mindful moments. Our walk back leads us through the parish of São Pedro de Este.

Upon our return at Casa Nefelibata we will enjoy mindful tea from Chá Camélia, a Portuguese tea plantation located near Porto.
