Day 4 e-learning market and Bom Jesus basillica

Day 4 started well with a trip to a consulting firm who specialise in upskilling unemployed people and also linked in with industry through e-learning. After this very informative visit we took in the famous Barcelos market then off on a cultural trip to Braga. We went to the beautiful basillica of Bom Jesus. Luckily we got the bus to the top of hill and enjoyed a lovely stroll through the woods before reaching our final destination of the Basillica. What amazing views. Unfortunately the basillica was undergoing some restoration work but the magnificent of the interior could still be seen. Some of the group travelled down using a water powered furnicular whist other’s walked the steps, a journey made easier by the interesting little chapels and many fountains. Excellent day.
