Favorite thing: Monsaraz is an enchanting white village enclosed within the castle?s walls, situated on top of a hill on the plains of Alentejo. Houses are small and charming, respecting typical architecture of this zone and epoch of construction.

Monsaraz is probably the eldest village south of River Tejo (Tagus) and there is evidence of pre-historic monuments nearby (megaliths). Main must sees are the castle, the bullring which is situated inside the castle, the beautiful church, the romantic narrow flowered streets and the breathtaking views to the surrounding plains and lakes.
