MONSARAZ

Monsaraz

Monsaraz isa hill top village, some 200km east of Lisbon, near the border with Spain. We visited on our way back from the UK in our campervan. Monsaraz is a delightful place which attracts many tourists.

Monsaraz is just 150km away from Merida in Spain, the largest Roman settlement on the Iberian peninsula. Watch out for a future blog and video on Merida.

The lake you pass on the route in from Spain provided us with a very refreshing swim, on a baking hot day, prior to walking round the village. It seemed like we had the whole lake to ourselves. Except for a lovely French couple we met who were also enticed by the cooling waters of the lake.

Refreshed and ready to roam…
