Castelo de Bragança

One of the most imposing fortresses of the 13th century, with an oval plan, cylindric towers in the angles and a square donjon in the centre. The donjon, gothic, is about 33 metres tall and in it the battlements and the ogival windows stand out. On the north side of the walls there is the "Princesse's Tower", thus named because, according to an ancient legend, there lived as a prisoner a young moorish girl loved by a Christian.
