Postmarked Braga, dated 3 August 2005.

Bom Jesus do Monte is a religious sanctuary within the city of Braga in northern Portugal.  There are indications that there has been a chapel on the site since the 14 century, though the current sanctuary was started in 1722.  In the 19th century the area around the church was turned into a park.
