Where you’ll be

Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, Portugal

The small village inside the castle is picturesque and quiet. Most of my neighbors have lived here for generations. The house where a Spanish - Portuguese treaty was signed in 1274 is next door, the prison, ancient ovens, and a natural spring are nearby.
