Braganca

Braganca;

This strategic hilltop was the site of a succession of forts before Fernao Mendes, brother-in-law to King Afonso Henriques, built a walled citadel here in 1130.

Like several predeccessors, it was named Brigantia. Within the walls still stand Sancho I's castle, built in 1187, with its watchtowers and dungeons, and the pentagonal 12th-centry Domus Municipalis beside the charch of Santa Maria

The town gave its name to Portugal's final royal dynasty, descended from an illegitimate son of Joao I who was created first Duke of Braganca in 1442.

Guimaraes;

Furamedo by gentry rising hills, the town of Guimaraes is celebrated as the birthplace of the nation.

When Afonso Henriques proclaimed himself king of Portugal in 1139, he chose Guimaraes as his capital, and the distinctive outline of its proud castle appears on the Portuguese coat of arms.

In the well-preserved city center, the narrow streets of the medieval quarter and ideal for exploration on foot.

The cobbled Rua de Santa Maria, lined with old town houses embellished with ornate statuary, leads up from the main square, the Largo da Oliveira, past the Paco das Duques to the castle.

To feel the hustle and bustle of the Middle Ages, visit the town in the first week of August for the Festas Gualterianas, a festival of medieval art and costume.

Mafra

Palacio Mafra;

The massive baroque palace and monastery, which dwarfs the small town of Mafra, was built during the  reign of Portugal's most extravagant monarch, Joao V.

It began with a vow by a young king to build a new monastrery and basilica, supposedly in return for an heir (but more likely, to atone for his well-known sexual exposses).

Work began in 1717 on a modest project to house 13 Franciscan friars but, as wealth began to pour into the royal coffers from Brazil, the king and his Italian-trained architect,

Johann Friedrich Ludwing(1670-1752), made ever more extravagant plans.

No expense was spared:52,000 men were employed and the finished project housed not 13, but 330 frairs, a royal palace and one of the finest libraries in Europe, decorated

with precious marble, exotic wood and countless works of art.
