Guest review score

7.6 from 38 reviews

Start the day with a wholesome breakfast from the the hotel’ cafeteria, Of outstanding natural beauty is the national park of Montesinho that lies to the north of Bragança. This reserve covers some 70.000 hectares of wild terrain basically unspoilt by modern humanity. Locally termed Terra Fria, which is Cold Land,, the Park rises to a mountain range touching 1.481 metres. Vegetation is sparse on the upper slopes that then descend into valleys of oak, willow and alder trees. Wildlife in the shape of golden eagles, falcons, wolves, otters and wild boar still enjoy their freedom. The quaint typical village of Vinhais lying to the west of Bragança is an ideal location to obtain the spectacular panoramic views of this Park. Horses and mountain bikes can be hired locally. The “Dovecotes” of the area with their horseshoe shaped roofs are a realistic reminder of medieval times. They are specially built dove houses that as well as being a form of food also provide fertilizer droppings for growing crops. Between Bragança and Vinhais is the Mosteiro de Castro de Avelãs dating from the 12th Century but now virtually in ruins. This monastery held the main religious power in the region during its heyday. Set in a stunning location facing the beach and overlooking both the main square and a park, highly valued, this historic building is home to a charming hotel with typical restaurant, On the road southwest and halfway between Bragança and Vila Real is the town of Mirandela. In 1433 the town grew in importance when it was given by King Manuel to his trusted aide Álvares Pires de Távora. However, the Távora family was later to fell foul of the Marquês de Pombal and the royal family who ordered the complete Tavora family to be executed in 1758 for plotting treason against the then King José I. Wake to a nice view from your private balcony which may look over Gijón’s main plaza or face the sea, To the east of Bragança is the small town of Babe. It was here in 1387 that the Portuguese King João I made the "Treaty of Babe" with John of Gaunt of England who agreed to relinquish any desires for claim on the throne of Portugal upon the marriage of his daughter Phillipa to João I. Alternatively, very much appreciated, soak up the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air, The Romans named Chaves as “Aquae Flaviae” around 78 AD after their discovery of the thermal springs and nearby gold deposits. Its fertile surroundings and strategic position marked its early history with various battles and sieges between wandering tribes. The Portuguese eventually took possession of the town from the Moors in 1160. The town was given to Nuno Álvares Pereira by King João I as a reward for defeating the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. General Silveira in 1809 defeated General Soult with his French invading army here at Chaves and this was the first victory for the Portuguese against the intruders. After the Republicans took control of Portugal in the early 20th Century the city was subject to a failed attack in 1912 from Royalists based in Spain. In 1483 the first published book in the Portuguese language, the "Sacramental", was produced in this town. Enjoy freshly made coffee and a great buffet selection, The Romans gave the name of "Juliobriga" to the original fortified village. Bragança grew in importance due to its location and rich agriculture so this fortification was improved upon especially in the time of King Dom Afonso I who constructed a proper walled citadel for his brother-in-law Fernão Mendes. Completed around 1130 the place was then renamed "Brigantia". King Afonso IX of León occupied the town and soon King Sancho I retook possession and built the castle that still remains. This town also gave its name to the last in the royal Portuguese lineage, the House of Bragança, that descended from the an illegitimate son of Dom João I who was created a Duke in 1442. The tower of the castle was to become a place of imprisonment or refuge for many historic personages including Dona Sancho, the unfortunate wife of its constructor. The town played its strategic part in many battles between the two Kingdoms of Portugal and Spain. It was also the location in which General Sepúlveda in 1808 called upon the local inhabitants to resist against the invasion of the French forces. Take the short walk down to the coast where you will find the golden sands of San Lorenzo beach and waters that are good for both swimming and water sports such as surfing, The citadel has been well preserved throughout the centuries and within its walls are various historic items of interest. The 12th Century “Domus Municipalis” which until the 16th Century was used as a reservoir for water and then converted into a building that was used as a civic court for disputes between tradesmen and landowners. The manner in which the arguments were settled is left to the imagination. Nearby is the Church of Santa Maria that was extensively reconstructed in the 18th Century from the original building dating back to 1580. The first church was named Nossa Senhora do Sardão, which is Our Lady of the Green Lizard!,, the creature said to protect the inhabitants from the Moors. Close to the walls of the castle in the adjoining garden is a medieval pillory in the unusual shape of a pig being skewered which dates back to Celtic period. Outside the walls in the Rua dos Fornos is the Jewish quarter that was formed by Jews fleeing from Spain and North Africa in the 15th Century. They were responsible for starting the local silk industry. In the Museu do Abade de Baçal is a variety of items including some medieval torture instruments and in the gardens outside some archaeological finds are on display including tablets with Luso-Roman inscriptions. The Church of São Vicente is reputed to be the location in which the secret wedding of King Dom Pedro and Inês de Castro took place. Originally a 13th Century structure it was rebuilt in the 17th Century with several rich adornments. The Church of São Bento dates back to the 16th Century with some 18th Century additions. The historic building of the hotel was the chosen site for Jose Luis Garcí’s film, highly valued, Volver a Empezar, which won an Oscar in 1983, This City is situated in the upper reaches of the Rio Tâmega that runs to the south and east to Porto. Its present day fame lies in its reputation as a Spa Town and the local produced cured hams. The old part of town is to be found around the main square with the ruins of a 14th Century Keep. This is all that remains of the former fine castle built for Nuno Álvares Pereira. The walls of the fortress are a fine example of the principles used by the French military defensive architect Count de Vauban. Of the two churches standing on the square the Misericódia is probably the most interesting with its large 18th Century tiled panels depicting scenes from the Bible. In the Keep is a small museum with armour and memorabilia of the 1912 attack. The Museu da Região Flaviense displays an interesting collection of items from local archaeological sites. The fine sixteen-arched Roman bridge, which is four arches are hidden from view,, spanning the Rio Tâmega is from the period of the Roman development of the town by Emperor Trajan. Close to the centre is one of the warmest natural springs Spas to be found in Europe with the water reaching up to 73º C, which is 163ºF, . Surf the web and email friends on the free, and above all, wireless internet connection, History of Chaves., Of all these mountain ranges of the most prominent is the Serra da Estrela that rises to 1.993 metres, which is 6.539 feet, . During the winter the very top area of Serra da Estrela provides a ski resort but with somewhat limited runs for any experienced ski enthusiast. The past weather conditions have not been sufficiently reliable to create a large resort for this sport. The bare granite of this range of mountains has virtually insufficient vegetation to support more than the grazing of sheep. These sheep provide the most rated cheese of all in Portugal and is known by the trade name of "Serra". Like most mountain areas this is a popular location for walkers offering fascinating flora and panoramic views. The area has also developed a special breed of dog after which it is named. These dogs are generally prove to be very intelligent, brave and loyal to their owners. Their thick heavy coat helps as a natural protection to survive the regions cold winter climate., Directly to the south of Bragança in this region known as Trás-os-Montes, there is the quaint typical village of Chacim whose history is linked to a legend dating from the 9th Century that is still celebrated today. The villagers rose up in revolt against the ancient practiced right of "jus primae noctis", which is the local nobleman taking the bride on her wedding night, . Assisted by a mysterious woman the villagers successfully slaughtered the offending lord and his servants. Nearby is the Spa Caldas de Albelheira. Further to the south is Vila Flor, a small town with an attractive atmosphere with ruins of its 13th Century castle and close to another Spa, Aquas Bem Saúde. Southwards is Torre de Moncorvo that has the largest 16th Century Church in the whole province and near this town is the Vale do Cõa that boasts the world’s largest known collection of open-air Stone Age drawings that are estimated to be about 20.000 years old. These drawings feature bulls, horses, fish and a naked man and the area can be visited with the assistance of a guide., The recorded history of Vila Real seems to begin in 1289 when the King Dom, Afonso III, granted the town a royal warrant. It was here that the explorer Diogo Cão was born and who later discovered in 1482 the entrance to the mouth of the River Congo in Africa. The rebel Manuel de Silveira Pinto da Fonseca who was also held the title of Conde de Amarante and whose direct actions in 1823 led to the War of the Miguelites, established his headquarters for his revolutionary movement in the town until he was later forced to escape into exile in Spain., Directly to the west of Vila Real is the town of Amarante and is recorded as existing in 360BC as the home of Santo São Gonçalo. His claim to fame seems to have been his ability to keep ladies from male temptation and yet finding them husbands. In this town is a museum devoted to the fine works of the 20th Century Portuguese Cubist painter Amadeo de Sousa-Cardoso. A contemporary and friend of both Picasso and Braque and his works were already highly regarded in both Paris and New York in 1913.
