There is no station in Bragança now but express buses run from Braga, Porto and other cities. Twice a week there is a bus from Zamora in Spain - no web address so phone either bus station for details.
Walking will be easy for most but it's possible to get a taxi up to the Cidadela for those who find the short but steep hill daunting.
The town is pleasing and there's a good museum in the main street but bragança's main claim to fame lies in the Cidadela, virtually a separate village above the town and one with a distinctly medieval flavour. There are three particular sights here.
- Torre de Menagem - the massive keep of a castle belonging to the Dukes of Bragança, the last Portuguese royal family, but not their principal residence, which was at Guimarães.
- Domus Municipalis - a pentagonal lay building - probably an 11th-century council chamber.
- a preaching cross rising from the back of a prehistoric pig outside the castle.
