Get to know Braga

Braga is the city hosting Utopia. The cultural policies that make this city the Portuguese Capital of Culture in 2025 have a special focus on literature. The work the city has been doing with schools and cultural activities in connection with books now has a new and relevant ally: Utopia. The literary festival emerges with the clear mission of presenting and affirming itself as a global brand of events, born in the youngest district capital in Portugal.

When visiting Braga for the Utopia Festival, don’t miss the opportunity to get to know the city. The historical center, its rich religious heritage and the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte (world heritage site) are only a few of the highlights awaiting you in a city with over 2000 years of history.
