Monsanto Castle - Monsanto, Castelo Branco

On top of the highest hill in Lisbon sits St. George’s Castle. The area is called the Alfama. The castle started out as a 5th century Visigothic fort. Then the Moors came and built the castle. In 1147 Dom Afonso Henriques expelled the Moors and the kings or Portugal lived here until the 16th century. A lot of the castle was destroyed during the great earthquake of 1755.

Fatima, Portugal. Not just for pilgrims! Lots to see in the area including a piece of the Berlin Wall for some reason... Not as historical but feels like very authentic Portugal.
