Miranda do Douro The Tras-os-Montes ("beyond the mountains"), which basically covers the Bragança area, is undoubtedly the most little known region of Portugal. And yet, its history, towns and countryside make this an authentic and attractive region. High mountains and steep valleys in succession stretch up to the Montesinho Nature Park where magnificent landscapes are home to important fauna. A number of medieval towns punctuate the area's roads: Bragança, the capital, surrounded by ramparts, or Miranda do Douro, a fortified city perched above the Douro River. Here's a corner of Portugal for you to discover and, why not... make this home? While the real estate market may look less buoyant around Bragança than in other more tourist regions, there are still all types of properties for sale at all prices.
