Description of the place: Cabanas de Viriato is one of the biggest and the most typical towns in the country. Locals argue that Viriato, the leader of the Lusitanian people was born here, and he also found shelter in this place, seeking protection from the harsh weather of Estrela mountain and Roman manhunts. In Cabanas de Viriato, you will find vestiges of ancient manor houses. However, the most striking house is the one where Aristides de Sousas Mendes lived. He was the holocaust time hero, who was born and who died here.
