The 12 Historical Villages of Portugal give you 12 good reasons to visit the inland region of Center of Portugal. The Historical Village of Castelo Rodrigo is certainly one of them.
A true precious gem bathed by sunlight, Castelo Rodrigo seduces its visitors with its narrow widening streets, beautiful accommodations, delightful cafés and a pleasant shop owned by a Frenchman, André, who fell in love with this charming village and stayed for good.
Nowadays, the town of Castelo Rodrigo still keeps its medieval outlines, surrounded by imposing walls which remind us of the identity of its history, often divided between both sides of the border.
Castelo Rodrigo was classified Best Tourism Village by the UNTWO.
