Monsanto, sounds like a combination of mountain and sanctuary, and maybe that is what it was in days gone past...a blend of the mountain it is built on and OF and the heights of the mountain could provide sactuary in times of strife.
The phone number of the Touurist Office is:
Open from 10:00-13:00 and 14:00-18:00
Whatever the case may be, we found this small village to be fascinating and plan to visit again for a longer period of time. It has such an "ancient" feel about it, it sort of oozes out at you, like a fresh water spring from a rock.
Take your time to climb all the way to this last lookout, park, restarea at the top of the village...it is just before the pathway forks to the castle on the summit.
- Pros:Wonderful blend of architure mimicing nature
- Cons:STEEP, VERY steep and hot in summer
- In a nutshell:Would not miss this place for anything.
A high point, just about anywhere in Monsanto, will give you views "down" into the village, its streets, its rooftops,... more travel advice
The winding paths (streets) of Monsanto are winding for a reason...as you pass by, and UNDER some of the enormous house... more travel advice
