The walled medieval village of Monsaraz, maintains the magic from ancient times like few others in the world. Made of lime and schist, this place whispers us, between the echo of our footsteps in its streets. A lot of magnificent stories could be told about its courageous kings, Knights Templar, brave people and dames of simple beauty.
Suspended in time, the historic village, one of the oldest in Portugal, is a mandatory destination to add to your list of places to visit in Alentejo. Especially after, in 2017, it won the category Monument Villages in the competition 7 Maravilhas de Portugal Aldeias (7 wonders of Portugal Villages). Today, Monsaraz is a museum village which you must add to your list of what to do in Alentejo.
