Plaque commemorating the revision of the Bragan rite in the early 20th century, revision which this blog is dedicated to
We very recently had the opportunity to visit the cathedral of Braga. If you do get a chance to visit, read up on the cathedral’s history yourself: we were unlucky with the tourguide that showed us around, as she revealed unaccurate knowledge of the place; her presence was needed, however, to have access to other chapels and the choir loft. No mention whatsoever was made of the Bragan rite.
