Menagem Tower - Castle of Braga

1 review of Menagem Tower - Castle of Braga


Symbols and anagrams

The keep is all that remains of the ancient Castle of Braga and has been declared a National Monument. It's just behind the archway and the Church of Our Lady of Lapa, in the heart of the city and was built by King Dinis (his coat of arms is on the facade). It's an embattled square tower 30 meters high, with 3 floors that are used as an exhibition hall. I was struck by the different carved symbols and anagrams, both inside and outside.
