This hydraulic system was built between 1744 and 1752, by order of then Archbishop José de Bragança (1741-1756), brother of King Juan V of Portugal. Although today it is still fully operational, it ceased to be the main source of water supply in 1914, when the collection system from the Cávado River came into operation. The Seven Springs complex is located on the outskirts of the city, in the “Areal de Cima” - civil parish of S. Vítor- area, close to the Geira Roman Road (“Route XVIII”), meaning that today it is still surrounded by nature and is a really pleasant location to visit. The complex consists of a group of water mines and man-made structures that extend over 3,500 metres, segmented into 14 underground galleries and 6 junctions, in a structure built entirely of stone. Near the complex is the Church of Montariol, a temple that belongs to the Seminary of Montariol of the city of Braga. Built in 1562 on Monte Calvelo, it is one of the biggest attractions thanks to the views it offers of the city. In addition, during the Christmas season it is home to the oldest nativity scene in the city of Braga. If you’d like to take your time visiting these attractions in the city, you can always use public transport. However, you can also travel with your own private car or vehicle. In this case, keep in mind that there is a Saba car park on R. Das Sete Fontes Street, 4710-243, where you can park your car at any time of day.
