Iconic for its heart shape, and practically millenarian, the citadel holds one of the best preserved castles in the country, as well as the emblematic dungeon tower and the typical houses/restaurants of the area.
Unique representative of the Romanesque architecture, it is in pentagon style and the year 1910 was marked by its classification as a monument and national heritage.
“Its worn stones are witnesses of a troubled History, dating back to the Bronze Age, counting with the presence of Romans, Suevi and Visigoths, carrying on combats that helped to establish the border lines and the strategic importance of the burgh.” – In, CM Bragança.
