MORE INFORMATION

Description of the place: Situated in the east slope of Gardunha mountain range, this 650 m high Historical Village stands out for its concentrically harmonious design and the well-preserved urban structure. The streets have been drawn in accordance to the contour lines, revealing former manor houses, side by side of stone houses, small wooden verandas and vestiges of Roman paths. Among the must-see places, you should visit the Town Hall, the jail and the pillory, the drinking fountain Chafariz da Bica, Misericórdia Church and the Castle. Located in a small elevation, on the way out of the village, you will find Cabeço da Forca, a place where convicted people were executed with two symbolical skulls sculpted in the rocky floor.
