Castelo de Vide

Castelo de Vide, is a small village in the upper Alentejo that belongs to the district of Portalegre. Regardless of its size it is considered one of the best preserved medieval villages in Portugal. Castelo de Vide lies at the foot of the natural park of Marvão, a few kilometers from neighboring Spain. As the name implies this city has an imposing castle that stands on a high, strategic point. With this castle its military magnificence of old is extremely marked, however, this village is one of the Portuguese villages with more Jewish symbols so during its history this village had a strong presence of this people.
