Braga Castle | Castelo de Braga

Braga has more than 2,000 years of history. Even in recent years the issue has always divided the people. In the name of “progress” a lot of cultural heritage has been destroyed throughout time. The castle was no exception – in 1905 the city had to decide what to do with the castle walls surrounding its main tower. We can only imagine how fierce the discussion was. Anyhow the result of that discussion can be seen if you visit our lovely city : the main tower stands alone among modern city buildings. We are almost perfect people!
You can visit it on weekdays from 9 to 5 – it is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Coordinates 41.5513° N, 8.4238° W
