Bom Jesus

Posted on Tuesday, 12 September 2006 at 02:31.

This morning I woke up early (7ish) and took the bus to Bom Jesus, just to the east of Braga (I’m not sure whether it’s a part of Braga or a place on its own). I was told it was pretty, and so it was. Up on a mountain with a nice view over Braga, and a beautiful church, some foresty parts, lots of flowers, a cave with stalactites and stalagmites, an elevator cart up get people up and down the mountain (hydraulic: they use water to pump it up and down, unique in Portugal today), and lots and lots of stairs for those who don’t want to take the elevator.

In the afternoon I went to Braga center, bought an apron and a bus card (5.5 euros for 10 rides, which is half the money you pay when you buy a ticket in the bus itself). At night Elena and I finished leftovers from Monday.
