Paço dos Duques de Bragança

This is a 15th century Monument constructed by orders of Dom Afonso, Count of Barcelos. It is a building with huge dimensions, with four bodies that surround an inside yard in rectangular plan. This construction probably occupied the place from the former Palace from León Kings. It was rather altered throughout of the centuries and recently restored. It deserves special mention the Gothic chapel doorway, the “lost steps” and the dining room. It possesses a Museum where we stand out the four copies from Pastrana tapestries that describe some of the episodes in the African conquest, the core on Flemish tapestries, the Portuguese furniture from the after discoveries period and, yet, porcelains and guns from the 15th and 19th century.
