Bragança, capital of Trás-os-Montes, gave its name to the latest and greatest Portuguese dynasty. Above the new city stands the medieval citadel, under its walls. The citadel has a special atmosphere of an old quarter with its cobbled, quiet and flowery streets.

Gone are the days when Bragança was at a nine-hour drive from Lisbon. The construction of good transport links made the city closest to the big cities of the northeastern coast.
