This is the city where, in 1143, Portugal was born as an independent and free kingdom from what we now call Spain.

Afonso I, was the first king after battling against his own mother (daughter of Afonso VI – king of Leão e Castela).

The classical architecture is very present in this city that still preserves its past and ancient glory.

The monuments, streets, houses and traditional commercial buildings are very beautiful and the people are very friendly and welcoming.
