Beautiful Bragança: Portugal's Best Kept Cultural Secret


 
Travel & Tourism,Art and Culture,Advice
Want to explore the beauty of Portugal without being surrounded by tourists? Bragança is one of the country’s most underrated – and therefore blissfully quiet – destinations. Since it is a traditional, untouched area of Portugal, not only does it have some beautiful scenery but also a rich history, a fascinating culture and landmarks that are a must-see.

What to Look Out For

There is plenty to see and do at the village of Bragança, so it’s a great place for a day trip during your holiday in Portugal. Here are some of the places you should take the time to look out for while you’re there:

• The Castle

Bragança Castle dates back to the twelfth century, but it is thought to have been built on the site of an Iron Age fort. Discover the several watchtowers, the 33m keep and the beautiful castle gardens. The whole structure has aged remarkably well, and remains an interesting piece of Portuguese history.

• The Museum

Located deep within the keep of the castle, Museu Militar is the place to go if you want to learn more about the country’s history. Its exhibits include medieval armour, some army weaponry, and incredible artwork from soldiers in the colonies. Certainly worth a visit during your holiday in Portugal – especially since there won’t be any crowds!

• The Natural Park

This expanse of natural beauty is home to wild animals such as otters, boars and wolves. The park is not only the perfect place for walkers but birdwatchers too, as eagles often fly across the nearby mountains. While walking through the park you will also spot some picturesque, medieval-looking villages.

Arte-fact: Still standing, and a popular attraction for visitors, is the Domus Municipalis. The building is Portugal’s last remaining example of Roman Civic Architecture and is an unusual, pentagonal shape. Definitely worth finding if you’re into ancient buildings!

Legends of Bragança

Like many other Portuguese towns, Bragança has its legends. These captivating stories that have been retold through the centuries are truly one of a kind. One of the most famous is that of Dom Perdo I, who is said to have married his forbidden love, Inês de Castro, in the church of São Vicente, which is still accessible today.

There is also the well-known legend of the Duke of Bragança, who apparently held his wife, Queen Leonor, captive in a tower for being too beautiful for the public gaze (I bet she was a sight for sore eyes when she finally got out!). How to Get There

Getting to Bragança is very straightforward, as flights into Porto airport are frequent and relatively cheap. A flight from the UK will take about two and a half hours, but the town is only 35 minutes from there. It is easier to pre-book a shuttle service to take you from the airport to your destination, as you will avoid the inevitable queues at Porto for taxis and public transport services. Start your holiday in Portugal sooner by sorting your shuttle before you fly.
