  • Our walk on the Camino Português led us through the fortress town of Valenca. The original 13th century structure surrounding the old town was fortified in the 17th and 18th centuries. No surprise...

  • Wonderful scenic 17th century medieval fortified walled city. So much history, character and beauty in this awesome place. Stroll around the walls, walk the streets, shops and hang out at a restaurant, bar or cafe. Street buskers add their music to the colour and flavour to this wonderful mix of people and historical streets. Everywhere you look is a picture to be taken.
  • it's worthwhile visiting. the inner, middle and outer walks around the fortaleza give a good impression of the place. amazing what people were able to build so many centuries ago. what is the plan behind the layout? how many hidden rooms and passages are there to be discovered? by the way :the shop that sells nearly everything is run by a very friendly, attentive and helpful man. prices are not higher than at the weekly market
