Braganca then and now
Still resounding with the deep echoes of an exciting and turbulent past, Bragança evokes its Medieval history in every stone and vestige and its romantic atmosphere. During the 11th to 14th centuries, the city was controlled by ruling families, and often became scene to legendary, almost Shakespearean family feuds. Built on the vestiges of an old Roman castro, the city bloomed and withstood Muslim and Spanish attacks.
Many of the Portuguese Kings and Emperors came from the House of Braganza, whose feudal castle can still be visited today – along with all the wonderful attractions that can be admired in this lovely city!
