Route to Bom Jesus and the Sanctuary of Sameiro, at start of Via Mariana

Various ones.
I lived in Braga 2 years while working for Habitat for Humanity and would definitely suggest spending some time there. One thing to do is to go to the shrine of Bom Jesus. Local pilgrims walk up the steps, or there is a funicular to the top. There are 4 cathedrals around one of the grand plazas; the oldest has elements built in roman days. One cafe has glass blocks in the floor so it's possible to see some Roman ruins. And there is the modern part of the city complete with shopping mall...
There is a waymarked route which goes to Bom Jesus and the Sanctuary of Sameiro, which is also the start of the Via Mariana, I always intended to do this as my pre Camino Geira start but I read recently that they are building an Albergue De Peregrinos up at Sameiro and from the photo I saw are getting on with it, so I might spend the night overlooking Braga as well. Here is a link to the route http://viamarianalusogalaica.eu/vmlg-00-sra-do-sameiro-braga/

Edit:
This was moved from another thread which had an established conversation going on, it was better moved to a relevant topic.
