Bragança is full of history. Its castle takes us back to the House of Braganza, which had its first monarch of Portugal in King João IV, who was responsible for the Restoration of Independence in 1640, after 60 years of Spain dominance. Nowadays, the municipality of Bragança is located at the frontier of the Montesinho Natural Park which is part of the Meseta Ibérica Transboundary recognized as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It's a place to safeguard the distinct elementsof the region and its biodiversity. Recently, Bragança was considered one of the most intelligent cities of Portugal, favoring innovative, participative, creative and sustainable actions.
