Located in Castel Branco's district, and close to Idanha-a-Nova and Termas de Monfortinho, Monsanto is a beautiful example of the traditional villages of inland Portugal, progressivelly abandoned by the migration of the populations to the coast. Well preserved, without artificial additions or reconstructions, it has not much resources to fix visitors, that usually make a brief stop, in a circuit that includes several of the highlights of the area.

Once said "The most Portuguese town of Portugal" Monsanto really deserves your visit. Lost in the progressively abandoned interior, close to the border, and in central Portugal, the site boosts splendorous views, and breeds authenticity in each stone. It's a steep place and needs an effort to climb to the top but you won't regret the effort.

Freedom, health and purity describe the feelings in location
