The goal of legions of penitent pilgrims every year, Bom Jesus do Monte is one of Portugal’s most recognisable icons. A rather windswept and glamorous pilgrimage site, lying 5km east of central Braga, the sober neoclassical church stands atop a forested hill that offers grand sunset views across the city. But most people don’t come simply for the church or even the view. They come to see the extraordinary baroque staircase, Escadaria do Bom Jesus.
