The Palace of the Dukes of Braganza (Paço dos Duques de Bragança) is a prominent architectural landmark located in the historical city of Guimarães, in the northern region of Portugal. Built in the 15th century, the palace originally served as a residence for the House of Braganza, one of Portugal's most significant noble families.

Designed in the Burgundian architectural style, the palace exhibits a striking façade with robust, angular shapes and numerous chimneys. Its interior showcases splendid rooms decorated with period furniture, tapestries, and artworks that depict different eras of Portuguese history.

After falling into disrepair, the palace was meticulously restored in the 20th century. Today, it operates as a museum and cultural venue, offering visitors a glimpse into the country's aristocratic past.

Surrounded by well-maintained gardens, the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza stands as a magnificent testament to Portugal's rich heritage and offers a captivating experience for history enthusiasts and casual visitors alike.
