The name of the region of which Bragança is the capital belies its nature, being that Tras-os-Montes, quite literally ‘behind the mountains’, is easily the most remote part of mainland Portugal. Bragança, the town, stands proudly on a plateau only a matter of a few kilometres away from the Spanish border. Known in Celtic times as Brigantia and by the Romans as Juliobriga, its hilltop location has appealed to many a defending population and it was the royal seat of the Dukes of Bragança until the dissolution of the monarchy in 1910, indeed the royal consort of English King Charles II, Catherine of Bragança, hailed from here.
