A cultural dynamic for all audiences

Every year, the Holy Week Commission of Braga organizes a rich and diverse cultural program, in addition to religious acts.


There are several concerts, always crowded, especially the concert of the church of São Marcos do Hospital, organized by the Holy House of Mercy of Braga, the Friday before the Good Friday; for the concert organized by the Brotherhood of Santa Cruz, in the church of the same name, on Holy Monday; and the symphonic choral concert at the cathedral on Tuesday, which is one of the show's exponents.


They are also several exhibitions (always above ten), which take place in various areas of the city, and that deal with the subject of Lent, Holy Week and Easter.


Other occasional initiatives are carried out annually, such as guided visits, representations, and others, especially the "Nova Ágora" Conferences, organized by the Archdiocese of Braga.
