Known under the Roman Empire as Bracara Augusta, Braga is the third largest city in Portugal, acting as a major hub for inland Northern Portugal. Human occupation of the city goes back thousands of years, having been documented by vestiges of structures which were first built during the Bronze age (around 1500 BC). The Romans began their conquest of the region in 136BC during the reign of Emperor Augustus. The municipality is divided into 37 civil parishes, and 22 urban civil parishes, and there is no formal city government. The major industries in the city are construction, metallurgy and mechanics, as well as software development and web design. Braga’s football team, Sporting Clube de Braga, formed in 1921 and play in the top division- their stadium is on a hill that overlooks the city. Braga is twinned with Rennes in France, Ivanovo in Russia and Bissorã in Guinea Bissau.
