"A place locked in time" Distrito de Castelo Branco by berenices

Distrito de Castelo Branco Travel Guide: 231 reviews and 470 photos

My favorite place in all of Portugal

Castelo Branco is not getting what it deserves -- it is not touted among the top places to visit in the country. Which in any case, I feel, is a bias towards coastal places and wrongfully neglects the rich, varied, immensely interesting interior areas. Long before the Age of Discoveries, long before Portugal built its overseas empire, there was the land, the roads, the towns through which passed ancient peoples, conquerors significantly the Romans, and served as important trading posts and routes.
