Visit the medieval town of Sortelha and the imposing Sortelha Castle with your English-speaking guide. Admire the granite houses of Sortelha which amplify the medieval façade of this town, before visiting the 14th-century Parish Church which has a special Spanish-Arab ceiling. Continue to the Sortelha Castle.
Classified as a National Monument, the castle dates back thousands of years but what we see today is the 13th- century remodel built under King Sancho III. Walk through the grounds of the castle, admiring the military architecture whilst your guide tells you folk legend and the history of the region. After your tour of the castle, return to the town and enjoy a delicious coffee with some Portuguese snacks as you chat further with your guide.
