  • The Castle on the mountain top and the stone houses of the village are one of the most amazing sites in all of Portugal and Spain. Have had several extensive trips to Iberia and Monsanto is at the top...  more »
  • Another one of the "Aldeia tipica de Portugal". You got to love the stone made houses and the small town on the hill environment. Should definitely visit this. Check Idanha-a-Velha after.  more »
  • Very unique village, well preserved and still full of life. Worth climbing all the way up to enjoy the sunset.  more »
  • For those who like history, visit Monsanto with time, this village in which the stones are part of the houses, streets and alleys, the corners of the facades of the houses, the conservation of the entire village, magnificent, situated on the slope of a hill composed largely of granite rock, is a place with a panorama around magnificent, from the top of the castle the view is superb but who is there to prepare the legs because it's not easy to get up there, but it's worth all the effort! Visit!!!!

  • All who visit Portugal must spend at least a day. Not to be missed.

  • Monsanto is in the news almost daily, for good reasons. The village is beautiful and most of the people are good people. A place that revisits pleased, for this reason I decided to build a small house, not only by the place itself, but also to give Monsanto a few more inhabitants during the holidays and in the future. Looking more closely, and having some petty people as neighbors faced with situations that we feel no longer exist in our times. That's what happens in the neighborhood of the Proenças, street of the paragraph 2, Catarrhs where my house, surrounded by 1 hectares of land, has as input of pigs and piggeries wagons of donkeys, just watching. I wish you in the near future, this situation is resolved, not only because aesthetically it's not the best scenario, but also because it removes the Monsanto a innate beauty, little seen in Portugal.
