Paco dos Duques de Brangança

The Palace of the Dukes of Brangança is the main lure of Guimarães today and quite a lure it is. Built in the 1st quarter of the 5th century by Afonso Henriques, the first Duke of Brangança, founder of Portugal, and router of Moors greets one in full armor out front:

Sorry, the light was just not right for the palace at the time:

The interior is not shabby, either. I liked the mortise & tenon construction of this table's legs:

Lovely small chapel
