From Porto take the A3 motorway in the direction of Braga and exit at Braga Sul. Then follow the signs for Bom Jesus.


After a series of hairpin bends the house is located on the left hand side of the road some 300 metres after two adjacent, small bridges that carry the steps to the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus and the Elevador – the first Iberian funicular and oldest operational transport in service anywhere in the world, which is run on water-power, through a system of counterweights.
