In one weekend, you can discover a lot in one place. Can you imagine an itinerary with cherries, historic villages, schist villages and mountain villages all on the same route? Well, we've already seen cherries there, let's keep traveling.

ALPEDRINHAS CENTER OF PORTUGAL

Alpedrinha is one of Portugal's mountain villages. Its houses, streets and squares are beautiful and all made of stone. But I don't want to talk about beauty, I want to talk about a lively festival there! The Caminhos da Transumância Festival. It's unique in the country and the locals open their doors for three days of festivities! With lots of music, local products and tradition in the village of Alpedrinha. It's incredible! It takes place every year on the third weekend in September.

NEW CASTLE CENTER OF PORTUGAL


But it's not over yet! Next stop: here we go, and the ruins of a medieval castle welcome us from afar.
We've reached one of Portugal's twelve historic villages: Castelo Novo. The steep rocky outcrops in front of the landscape make it seem as if they are one thing, transforming the buildings and nature into something unique. It's beautiful.
