Castle of Bragança

castelo braganca

Built in the fifteenth century on a building from the time of D. Dinis, it features gothic architectural features, consisting of the keep and a set of walls, which surrounds the old core and forms four individualized enclosures. Implanted in a high place, with an irregular oval plan, the interior also reveals part of a Sanchina road organization, with two main axes coming to the Porta da Vila.

The Castle of Bragança is one of the most important and well preserved Portuguese castles. From the top of its walls you can see the mountain ranges of Montesinho and Sanabria (to the north), Rebordões (to the northeast) and Nogueira (to the west).
