Once in Castelo Mendo

Castelo Mendo

To see Once in Castelo Mendo

… and then, as planned, we arrived to the village.

No crowds, no rushes, no hassles, just the authentic old Portugal.

And, for a while, we felt good…

​This is one of the historic villages of Portugal, near Coa river, and we may see its castle, the Domus Municipalis, two churches, and the highest pillory of the district.

A curiosity of the castle is the presence at the so-called village door of two pre-Roman representations of wild boars, whose tusks had been cut off to frighten the horses that passed by.
