Very well preserved medieval castle and walls, with a nice view of Vila Viçosa. Inside the walls you'll find nice green area to walk, old cemetery and church, a castle open for visiting.

Beautiful castelo with resourceful museum, cozy small town with good restaurants. There is an interesting palace too and all are very nearby to Spanish border.
