Photographer's Note

This is the fourth photo of Monsaraz old village Serie. Is a nice street view and also a tribute to this very nice, old, typical, touristic and historical village at the interior South of Portugal. This is a fortified village with a old Castle at the province of Alentejo, and near the frontier with Spain.

LOCAL: This village, is a touristic and historical old reference of Portugal and so you have the brother and sister at the the village of Reguengos of Monsaraz a few miles near this place that is well known for his good Portuguese wine.

This next information guidelines are a reference given done by two great TE Photographers about this village and their posts that you can also see in my links.

By VAGABOND: Monsaraz is a Medieval village, born inside the remparts of an old Castle, 50 kms or 35 miles SE of Evora Town and 40 kms or 25 miles away of the East Portuguese border. Every building was rebuilt in the last decades and are now worth a look. At the old remparts, it is possible to have a good view to the new Alqueva Dam, built recently at the Portuguese course of Guadiana River

By RETAGGER: The tiny medieval walled town of Monsaraz with it's narrow cobbled lanes is one of the most atmospheric places in the Alentejo as it still retains much of it's medieval charm. The rural way of life has stayed much the same for centuries and generations of farmers have gone about their daily lives almost untouched by the busy world around them.
The town was handed over to the Knights Templar before Dom Dinis added the castle and fortified walls in the 14th century. From these walls you can gaze east over the Guadiana river to neighbouring Spain, or west across the great plains of the Alentejo.

IMPORTANT Note: About this place I will show all the other TE Contributions to this old and historical village that is also like another Portuguese village that is OBIDOS a place also to visit and that you can see here: Link
