Implanted along the extensive avenue of centenarian oaks between the Sanctuary of Santa Maria Madalena and the Chapel of Santa Marta de Leão, secular place of religious pilgrimage, the Golden Tulip Braga was built on the ruins of the Franciscan convent of Santa Maria Madalena do Monte, built in the late 18th-century by the King D. Miguel.
It is documented that even at that time hotel services were provided to complement religious events and also for rest and therapy of lung diseases, given to the pure air breathed, a propitious micro-climate. Trademarks of the monastery are still visible inside the Hotel with the museum like exhibition of religious icons and use of stone walls and interior gardens and with the maintenance of the harmonious Chapel of Santo António da Paz.
