6/43.- Braga, "Santa Barbara" Gardens


This is a great Italian Renaissance garden. Behind the Garden you can see the medieval walls of the Archbishop’s Palace.

The origins of Braga are not known. It’s almost sure that the city was founded by the Gadhelic Celts (known also as Bracari, it seems that the name of Braga comes from that term). In 250 BC the Romans invaded the city and stayed here for several centuries, they named the city Bracara Augusta (after Emperor Augustus). During the Roman Empire Braga was the Capital of the Galicia Region.
