What to see in Bragança?

Bragança is the capital of the region of Trás-os-Montes, in the northeast of Portugal. This remote and mountainous region offers unique scenery, historic villages, natural landscapes and a rich gastronomy. Bragança is situated at the end of the Natural Park of Montesinho – one of the wildest forest areas in Europe, with a huge diversity of fauna and flora.

The inhabitants have a traditional way of life, especially in smaller cities and towns, such as Miranda do Douro, Mogadouro, Torre de Moncorvo and Freixo de Espada à Cinta. The daily life has not undergone many changes for centuries and these isolated villages have a very own rustic beauty. The region is especially beautiful in the spring when a white blanket of almond blossoms covers the valleys. The nearby Mirandela is known for its meats and alheiras, but you can find local specialties a bit throughout the region.

Day of the Natural Park of Montesinho / 30August

“The natural and landscape richness of the mountainous mountain range Montesinho – Coroa and the valuable cultural elements of the human communities that have settled there justify that actions are urgently initiated in order to safeguard the patrimony and the socio – cultural animation of the populations.

This paragraph is the beginning of the preamble to Decree-Law no. 355/79, of August 30, which classified the northern part of the counties of Bragança and Vinhais as a Natural Park. This status was justified by the natural, landscape and human values ​​of the region, the receptiveness of local authorities to safeguard the heritage of their municipalities and parishes and the potential of outdoor recreation and sport that the region possesses.

A Corane project, implemented by the company Key Content.

Montesinho, Quinta das Covas and Bísaro Salsicharia Tradicional, have joined this new brand, which will certainly contribute to the development of the transmontana cold earth.

The objective of this project is that the nature, cultural and religious heritage, gastronomy, tour operators, hotels, animation or points of sale of products, from the north-east of Portugal, will be “sold” together, under a common brand.
