Braga Cathedral is one of the main city highlights. It was built in 1093, presenting different architectural styles of diversified historical periods. Countless works, renewals and reconstructions were carried out until the 18th century. The monument is a crossing of Romanic, Manueline and Baroque styles. The main altar and the baptismal font stand out for Manueline religious sculpture. The High Choir can be found at the end of the naves. You can see it all along the visit to the Cathedral Treasure. Canon chairs are artistically rich. In front of the High Choir we find two of the most outstanding Baroque organs, still working nowadays. One of the organs has 2400 pipes, some of them immersed in water, producing a nightingale-resembling sound. Both Romanic and Gothic arcades mingle in the front portal. The Romanic part is an example of the variety of themes explored by Braga school.
