Braganca Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
There is a sort of castle which belonged to the Dukes of Bragança, who supplied the last royal family in Portugal, but it wasn't their main residence. Near it are two amazing things: the first is a pillory [pelourinho] rising from the back of a prehistoric stone pig.
The other is a pentagonal Romanesque building, which was once a council chamber. It is quite unique in the world!
Unfortunately www.bragancanet.pt is in Portuguese only but there are photos of all the above sights if you scroll down.
