Castle of Braganza, Braganca
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Castle of Braganza by using our Braganca tourist route planner.

  • Another magnificent Castle in Portugal which is obligatory stop in the city of Bragança, beautiful view of the city. The Tower of the message and the Domus Municipalis are the main attractions within the walls, which has residents and some very nice restoration sites with the sympathy of the band went. Place to visit again at other times of the year.

  • The visit to the military museum inside the Valley keep where it is installed and allows contact with important parts of the history of Portugal. It is a shame that the Museum has been stopped in time, in the absence of any sign of adapting to new techniques of museology.
