Tales of an impossible love in Castelo Mendo

Tales of an impossible love in Castelo Mendo

0€ per person

Enveloped in a medieval atmosphere, Castelo Mendo embraces a historical diversity that goes back to its first occupation, in the Bronze Age. Battles are relived here and legends are known, but it is in the kindness of Vilar Formoso that we find inspiration. We find stories in this village that are transported through time, about an eventual impossible love between Mendo and Menda two stone figures, facing each other in this village. A story or maybe a legend of love to rival Romeo and Juliet. It is better to listen to those who know.

Get to know Castelo Mendo through the voice of an inhabitant
Inspired by the legends and nursery rhymes of an old woman from Castelo Mendo, we are transported to the essence of a community which, against all odds, continues on top of this hill to guard the old border, the River Côa.
A moment to enjoy nature and the delicacies of this historical village. In the Church of Santa Maria do Castelo or in one of the natural mantles, the idea is one: contemplate nature and heritage, and forget about time.
Fronteira da Paz Museum
Memorial to the Refugees and to the Consul Aristides de Sousa Mendes, who issued thousands of visas in 1940, making it possible for thousands of Jews to escape the Nazi regime. It hides numerous testimonies of refugees who describe Vilar Formoso as a friendly place where they were welcomed with huge pots of soup, bread and accommodation. Vilar Formoso was the gateway to Portugal, renowned for its hospitality.
