Bragança preserves a unique heritage in a compact and well-preserved historic center, which can easily be reached on foot. The worn stones bear witness to a troubled history, dating back to the Bronze Age, with the presence of Romans, Suebi, and Visigoths, and continuing fighting that helped establish the border lines and the strategic importance of the village.
Beyond the walls, the cobbled streets guide the traveler through a rosary of temples, among which the S. Francisco Convent, the S. Vicente, and Misericórdia churches stand out, and the Sé, with a Renaissance cloister and sacristy, is worthy of mention. attentive visit. The same route is filled with magnificent manor houses, built between the 16th and 17th centuries, which today host public institutions.
Equally important is the cultural heritage preserved in the villages of the municipality, where ancestral traditions persist in peaceful rurality made up of community habits. It is like that in Rio de Onor, a border village with strong community roots; Montesinho, a pleasant village with stone houses and schist roofs; and, as is traditional in Trás-os-Montes, where there is always a smile for the reception.
