One of Portugal’s most perfectly protected medieval towns, Evora is a charming spot to dive into the past. Inside the fourteenth century fortified walls, Evora’s narrow lanes lead to striking structural works, an intricate medieval cathedral and cloisters, the dramatic columns of the Templo Romano which is close to the captivating Roman showers and a pleasant town square, once the site of some horrifying scenes courtesy an ecclesiastical tribunal established by Pope Gregory.

Determined to either side of the wandering Rio Gilao, Tavira is an enchanting town. The vestiges of a fortress, an old Roman bridge and a sprinkling of Gothic and Renaissance chapels are among Tavira’s notable attractions. Its alluring arrangement of restaurants and guesthouses makes it a great base for exploring the Algarve’s eastern area.

Encompassed by an exemplary crenelated wall, Obidos’ exquisite historic centre is a maze of cobblestoned avenues and bloom festooned; whitewashed houses livened up with dashes of clear yellow and blue paint. It’s a delightful spot to pass an evening, yet there are a lot of motivations to stay overnight, as there’s phenomenal accommodation including a hilltop castle has now changed into one of Portugal’s most extravagant inns.

The medieval capital of Portugal for more than a hundred years, and site of the nation’s most prestigious university for about 500 years, Coimbra wears its profound significance in Portuguese history with nobility. Its historic core falls down a slope in a dazzling setting on the east bank of the Rio Mondeg, it’s a kaleidoscopic arrangement of structures spread around for more than a millennia.

Monsanto

Like an island in the sky, the dazzling town of Monsanto towers high over the encompassing fields. A walk around its steeply cobbled lanes, lined with stone houses that appear to consolidate with the rock strewn landscapes, is reason enough to come. In any case to completely admire Monsanto’s tough seclusion, climb the shepherds’ ways above town to the forbidden castle, whose disintegrated walls provide panoramic views.
