Bus between Trabazos and Bragança ?

by EZE1

Hi there friends

I'll have to travel between these two cities. I try to find out whether there is a bus service. Which solution would you try yourselves ?
Thanks

Not too easy. Looks like taking a taxi.
There is a bus from Porto, calling at Braganca and at the border in Quintanilla. Doesn't stop in Trabazos, next stop after border would be Zamora. The bus runs Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and is operated by Inernorte; here is the link: http://www.internorte.pt/pdf/inernorte.pdf

I was in Braganca earlier this year. The Internorte bus referred to is probably the only bus across the border into Spain. None of the local bus routes I encountered even go that way towards the border.

Buses in the Braganca area can be found at www.stub.com.pt

Trabazos is not a city - population about 1023 persons. It is the first village in Spain when the border is crossed.

Hello friend

Would you have an idea how to get local bus timetable on the way from Trabazos to Bragança and Vinhais ?
Also, if i may, would you have a idea of the cost of a taxi km in Zamora province and in Bragança province.
All these questions are related to our pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
It is our third pilgrimage, first time crossing a corner of Portugal. As we are getting older and older, stages are longer than in the past. We would tend to reduce stage length using public transportation on 5 or 10 kms each time !

Thanks vm for help

There is no bus across the border from Braganca to Trabazos in Spain.

The only bus across the border in that zone that I have ever found is the Internorte bus spoken of in an earlier reply.

The local region bus website is www.stub.pt Their buses do not go to either of the places you speak or even nearby.

I have looked at the websites of two other bus operators that I know of in that area and it seems that neither do they. These very remote areas have almost no public bus service.

My suggestion for your pilgrimage is to avoid going through Braganca as it is a very difficult city to leave except if heading back into Portugal!

I cannot help with taxi fares in Zamora, which is Spain. I suggest you ask in a Spanish forum.

I have not ever taken a taxi in Braganca but here in Portugal you can expect to pay approximately €3 for the first km then 1 Euro for each km. Fares for a longer journey to the border with Spain might have to be discussed and agreed with the driver.

Thanks for your answers.

Travel Tips for Bragança

Bragança

by micas_pt

Bragança is the capital city of northeastern-most district of Portugal. It is a pleasant city to visit, but somewhat "far" from other cities: it takes some time to arrive in Bragança by car and public transportation is even more time consuming. This region of the country is called Trás-os-Montes, meaning "besides the mountains" and you may guess at it means in terms of accessibility.

Apart from that, it is a wonderful region to explore, providing amazing natural landscapes and welcoming people. Food is delicious, with good, tasty and big portions! A typical meat from this area is the "Posta", a very thick slice of meat that is grilled and better if done medium or rare.

Weather is very hot in summer months and very cold in winter, being probably amongst the coldest locations in Portugal reaching negative temperatures frequently.

Summer Weather in Bragança

by global84

Just because the city is located at the northern tip of the country, don't think that its summer weather will be any cooler than in Lisbon! In fact, it is as hot as the southern region, but sometimes the temperature is higher in Bragança. Its location plays a big role in creating such a weather - a nest-like valley surrounded by the mountains of Trás-os-Montes very far from the coast! Remember that this area is a part of Portugal's "terra quente" (hot land) whose summer weather can be pretty fierce.

Winter is pretty different though. The temperature being a single digit and sometimes sub-zero, the region gets a plenty of snow, hence the high alert of accidents along IP2 and IP4! - Enjoying the evening breeze at the riverside park on Rio Fervença
- Looking as far as Parque Natural do Montesinho from Castelo
- Taking a glance at the entire Citadel from the viewpoint across the river

Daytrips from Bragança

by micas_pt

As daytrips from Bragança we chose:

. Parque Natural de Montesinho, a beautiful natural protected area, with fantastic small villages to explore and amazing breathtaking landscape. Concerning small villages I'd highlight: Montesinho and Rio de Onor (the latter a community that spreads besides frontiers - the village is situated both in Portuguese and Spanish territory but they act as a single one);

. Puebla de Sanabria and the lake: a quick visit to Spanish lands, Puebla de Sanabria is a lovely village to explore. It is situated near a beautiful lake (Sanabria);

. Azibo dam: a beautiful dam with nice infrastructures to enjoy a river beach. This area of the country is far from the beach and very hot in summer, so you'd better enjoy the other resources it has to offer. When we visited in Spring it was still early for beach, but we enjoyed a magnificent sunset from this unusual beach.

Remote capital of Tras-os-Montes

by angiebabe

"Cidadela - 'one of the most memorable sights'"

The Cidadela, a circle of perfectly preserved medieval walls enclosing a white medieval village and rising to a massive keep and castle - 'one of the most memorable sights in Portugal' and the embodiment of the towns dynastic history.
The Bragancans were the last line of Portuguese monarchs ruling from 1640 when they replaced the Spaniards, with the Duke of Braganca taking the throne as Joao IV, until the fall of the monarchy in 1910.

"the castle approach to town"

Far but accessible

by solopes

The most remote town inland seems to have stopped for long in time, but with the recent improvements in accessibility, and the arrival of people abandoning the fields, it got a new boost in development. The conservative dominating mind helped to preserve the historic remains, and the old center is very interesting t visit.
