Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Northern Portugal / Braganca District / Braganca / Castle of Braganza
Built in 1409 and classified as a national monument, Castle of Braganza represents an outstanding example of medieval architecture. Despite its age, the fortification has withstood elements surprisingly well. Explore the citadel and Old Town, including the church of Santa Maria and the Domus Municipalis. The entire attraction is made up of 15 towers and three gateways. Look for medieval features like the battlements, the railed windows, and the stone carved arms of the Royal House of Avis. Those interested can stop by the on-site military museum.

By foot it's a tough climb to get up there, but you'll enjoy the view...and the bars nearby
It's a great place to visit, relaxed but fun nightlife aswell with plenty variety. Must visit.
