Castelo Branco in two minutes

Admire the tops of the hills. By Luís Filipe Lima Barbosa

The town of Castelo Branco was the cradle of some of Portugal's oldest traditions and it is a genuine open-air museum full of culture and good food with a view point that deserves a few minutes to take in the scenery.

This window over the town offers a blend of rural countryside and typical architecture, ancient monuments and medieval churches.

Castelo Branco is also known all over the world for its hand-embroidered blankets, the local cheese and for the wine and olive oil. Fancy coming for a visit?
