Welcome to Bragança
Situated in the far northeast of Portugal, Bragança is a city whose old castle still maintains a mediaeval urban core within its walls.
The town of Bragança, situated in the northeastern part of Portugal, was once under the protection of the House of Bragança, who governed Portugal from 1640 until the beginning of the 20th century. The town is located on a hilltop and is surrounded by a well-preserved fortified wall, making it the most well-maintained medieval town in Portugal. The wall overlooks the modern town from a height of 600 meters (1,968 feet) above sea level in the Serra da Nogueira region.

Located in Trás-os-Montes, just below the Montesinho Natural Park, is Bragança – a historic city with a dual personality. At one end lies the old town centre, protected by medieval battlements and crowned by a castle atop a hill; at the other end is the new town, featuring whitewashed urban houses and the tranquil Fervença river flowing at its feet.
