4.5
#1 of 16 in Things to do in Braganca District
Built in 1409 and classified as a national monument, Castle of Braganza represents an outstanding example of medieval architecture. Despite its age, the fortification has withstood elements surprisingly well. Explore the citadel and Old Town, including the church of Santa Maria and the Domus Municipalis. The entire attraction is made up of 15 towers and three gateways. Look for medieval features like the battlements, the railed windows, and the stone carved arms of the Royal House of Avis. Those interested can stop by the on-site military museum.

  • It is one of the castles that we have voted is best preserved. The panels are only in Spanish and Portuguese, but being a military museum that is there inside you can get an idea of that is every thing without reading it. The views from the top of all Braganca without spectacular

  • We visited Bragança and concur with the medieval feast so it had great atmosphere and we loved it. The visit and the entrance to the tower and across the wall is worth.

  • Medieval castle is well preserved and which can be accessed at any time of the day to stroll through its walls and streets, which also have small handcraft shops and restaurants/bars. Medieval mid-August market is a fantastic recreation of the era. We enjoyed it a lot.
