Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Perfect tourist destination. Located on a hill in the medieval Alentejo village-museum, one of the oldest in Portugal, it occupies a prominent position in the surrounding landscape.
From the walls there are splendid wide views of the Great Alqueva artificial lake, created by a dam on the Guadiana river.

A very well-kept small town with two main streets that leave the castle.

The castle is freely visited. It has a rounded central area, an old parade ground, with stone steps, which is now sometimes used as a bullring.

The views from the towers reach the entire surrounding area, perfect for monitoring the enemy (who would surely come from within Spain). On this day, after the heavy rains, the Guadiana was falling, flooding the banks.

The streets of the towns on this cold Monday were practically empty and most of the businesses closed. The mother church under construction.

The town is worth a visit. So more tourist season will surely have more atmosphere.

Monsaraz is a tiny medieval hilltop village located close to the border with Spain. It’s located in the eastern Alentejo region of Portugal and overlooks the Alqueva Lake with vast and spectacular views of the Guadiana Valley. During a road trip to Évora, we visited Monsaraz (about a 50-minute drive from Évora), and were enchanted by its preserved medieval charm.

Brief history.

Throughout the centuries, the Celts, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors all occupied Monsaraz. In 1167, the Knights Templar regained control of the village from the Moors. Plans to construct a castle and fortified walls began during the reign of King D. Afonso III and was completed by King D. Dinis in the 14th century. Because of its hilltop advantage, the castle was a military stronghold for many centuries. In the 19th century, the castle and surrounding grounds were converted to a bullfighting arena.
Stepping into the past.

We drove up a narrow, cobbled road leading to the village, with winding twists and turns up to the top of the hill. There are four entrances to the schist stone village. Apart from residents and service-related vehicles, parking is prohibited within the walls of the village. However, there are several well-marked public parking lots just outside the walls near each of the entrances and there are also parking spaces on the road along the wall.

We parked on the road alongside the wall and stepped into the past.

The village is charming with whitewashed buildings and uneven cobblestone lanes. Monsaraz is considered to be one of the most beautifully preserved villages in Portugal. There’s a peacefulness as you walk along. We stopped frequently to listen to the quiet. It would be hard not to feel the history of this place as you walk along the worn ancient stone roads.

Occasionally, we saw a resident, many of whom are older. The mail carrier who was working his way along the streets in his mail vehicle, stopped to talk to most of them who came out to get their mail. We were told that about 30 people make the walled village their full-time home.

Monsaraz Castle.

Walk along the main street and you’ll come to Monsaraz Castle. Classified as a National Monument of Portugal, the castle interior is not open to the public. But it’s the castle grounds that are the most impressive with panoramic vistas. This would be a great place to watch sunsets.

Shops and restaurants.

Although we visited in the off-season, there were a few artisan shops and restaurants open.

We stopped for lunch at Xarez. It was chilly outside, so we ate indoors. Our table was by the window and overlooked vistas of green pastures with grazing sheep and rolling hills. So relaxing (and the food was excellent!)

If you visit:

The best way to reach Monsaraz is by car or tour operator. Parking is not allowed inside the walls, but the parking lots are within a short walking distance of the entrances. For those with mobility issues, there are some steep inclines and uneven pavement. Inside the walls, the roads are all cobblestone and uneven.

There are public restrooms in the village. Most restaurants will have restrooms for their customers.

In high season, artisan shops are open as well as wine tasting shops and restaurants.

There are various cultural events held in the summer, mostly in July (peak season). The crowds are fewer if you visit in the spring (March to May) and in the fall (September to October).

The Igreja Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Lagoa church located in the village is worth visiting as it dates from the 16th and 17th centuries. The church was undergoing renovations when we visited so we were not able to go inside.

The castle grounds have panoramic views. The stairs are uneven and steep in many places.

We went to visit the castle of Monsaraz about 60 km from Evora. A beautiful experience as it offers an exceptional point of view over the entire region, especially the largest artificial lake in Europe which runs along the entire plain below. The castle is still well preserved with houses and small restaurants in between.

The Castle is located on the Monsaraz hill, in the district of Évora.
It is a medieval castle with military architecture.
Upon entering you find the little town, with its white painted houses, it is a town suspended in time.
The Templars walked through those places; is awesome.
It's worth a visit!!
