Monsaraz in the Alentejo region of Portugal is a stunning slice of well maintained history that has stood a massive series of tests through the centuries. It was fortified in the 12th century by Geraldo Sem-Pavor and has changed hands many times since.

Today it is a beautifully preserved town with plenty of attractions to keep visitors busy, not forgetting the stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
