The city of Braganca is a jewel for
wandering. Walk the narrow streets inside the old city walls, and feel
the history of this city that gave its name to one of Portugal's kings
Also - don't miss sipping a glass of
port at sunset on the Pousadas outdoor terrace overlooking the city
below - you won't soon forget it!
For hiking enthusiasts, there is a
beautiful national park, Parque Nacional de Montesinho, just north of
here that provides great trail hiking opportunities.
This is a little-visited and completely
fascinating part of the country. It had been isolated for centuries
before recent access via new paved roads. The natives here have
maintained rites and festivals of a very ancient, pre-Christian, time.
