Welcome to Vila Viçosa


This was once home to the Bragança dynasty, whose kings ruled Portugal until it became a republic – Dom Carlos spent his last night here before his assassination; it was also the birthplace of Catarina de Bragança (1638), who married Charles II to become Queen of England (and after whom Queens in New York was named). There are many sites and sights of marble (and nonmarble) and a friendly laid-back citizenry who are proud of their sparkling town.
