Bragança Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 96 photos
The Cidadela, a circle of perfectly preserved medieval walls enclosing a white medieval village and rising to a massive keep and castle - 'one of the most memorable sights in Portugal' and the embodiment of the towns dynastic history.
The Bragancans were the last line of Portuguese monarchs ruling from 1640 when they replaced the Spaniards, with the Duke of Braganca taking the throne as Joao IV, until the fall of the monarchy in 1910.
- Pros:great castle, intact medieval walls and inner buildings, interesting buildings around town, excellent viewpoint to look over the castle, beautiful countryside out of town
- Cons:we found it hard to find our way aound the town, difficult to find the youth hostel and the other atrractions in town
there a stopping area just below the Pousada which you can walk down to the paved walkway and look over the houses... more travel advice
