Braga has always been an important centre for culture, commerce and religion. Braga is marked by a long clerical history. Consequently, Braga is bristling with churches and monasteries. In addition, it is the capital of the Minho, the northern and most mountainous part of Portugal. It is the center for the industries of leather, textiles, brick manufacturing, soap making, engineering and smelting.

It is evident in the palace, churches, and military buildings of the 16th century. This influence continues even today.
