Located close to the Spanish border in the centre of Portugal, Monsanto is generally considered to be the most typical and picturesque of all Portugal’s prized villages.

Once described rather poetically as an island in the sky, it was first colonised by the Lusitanians and then by the Romans but never taken by assault in the course of countless sieges, thanks largely to its privileged and somewhat isolated setting at an altitude of 758 metres, just 10 km north-east of the historic town of Idanha-a-Velha.

Monsanto is a place where nothing ever really changes and time just seems to stand completely still. The village is one of the main features of a vast panorama incorporating Castelo Branco and the Estrela Mountains over which Lucan’s Tower has rung out the hours in exactly the same way for centuries.

With its huddle of steep, granite-paved streets and hobbit-sized houses hewn out of the rock, the origins of this ancient and altogether extraordinary place date from prehistory when it was linked with pagan rituals. In 1165, Portugal’s first king, Afonso Henriques, handed it over to Gualdim Pais, master of the Knights Templar, who built the village’s impregnable castle.

The captivating district of Castelo Branco is an open-air museum enriched with magnificent vestiges of Portugal’s past and is home to some of the oldest traditions that characterise the country today.
Designated as the capital of the district, the city of Castelo Branco is internationally reputed for its intricate hand embroidery, regional cheese, olive oil and wine. Laying amongst the rural landscape of Central Portugal, this beautiful city exhibits typical architecture, century-old monuments and medieval churches – an eye-catching destination for curious travellers.
