Paço dos Duques de Bragança

15th century monument built by Dom Afonso, Count of Barcelos. Large building, with four bodies that surround an interior courtyard with a rectangular plan. This construction occupied the place of the old palace of the Leonese kings. Much changed over the centuries, it was recently restored. Noteworthy are the Gothic chapel portal, the "lost steps" and the banquet hall. It has a museum where the four copies of Pastrana tapestries, which narrate some steps of the conquests in Africa, the core of Flemish tapestries, Portuguese furniture from the post-discovery period and also porcelain and weapons from the 15th to the 19th century are worthy of mention.
