Built among the walmedieval-castle-111783_960_720.jpgls in 208 B.C., and offered as a wedding present in 1282 by King Dinis to his new wife, Queen Isabel, this small and beautiful town has its roads and buildings in the gothic style and it is sprinkled with colours and flowers every corner. This guided tour would only be completed if we take you walking through the flowered and medieval roads of this small national pride.
