Braga closer to Spain

Braga is definitively located at a booming industrial region. It is only 50 kilometers far by car form the city of Porto and very close to the beautiful town of Guimarães. It is also moderately close to Spain. The southern Galician towns of Tuy and Vigo can be reached in less than one hour by car.

All these distances will be even less in a near future. Spanish and Portuguese authorities have showed a real compromise to accelerate the construction of the high speed train line between Braga and Vigo.  It is expected that  the route Braga- Vigo will be operative in 2013 and it will provide services to 3.5 million users annually.  One traveller will travel at 250 Km/h along this route and he will spend 34 minutes to cover such a distance.

You can find more information about this project on Rave (only Portuguese) and Adif (Spanish and English).
