Santa Barbara Garden is located adjacent to the eastern wing of the 14th century Archbishop’s Palace, you can find a small but charming public garden which takes advantage of the historic backdrop and also incorporates the medieval arches that remain of an arcade from the palace. The garden, designed by Jose Cardoso da Silva in the Romantic style in the 1950s, features a geometric layout that incorporates other features from the palace such as old statues, cornices and coats of arms. At the centre of the garden, there is a fountain topped by a statue of Saint (Santa) Barbara.

The Santa Barbara Garden, open year-round, is conveniently located in central Braga and offers a peaceful respite from the bustling city. Its lush greenery and well-manicured beds make it a lovely place to unwind.
