The extraordinarily unique district of Évora is where we find Montemor-o-Novo, one of the largest municipalities in the area. Montemor-o-Novo is a secret waiting to be revealed, a treasure for you to discover.
Much more than just an Alentejo town, where traditional dishes fill the senses and delight our taste buds, where wine warms even the coldest souls, Montemor-o-Novo is a perfect peaceful mix between the past which built Portugal and the present which supports it. A town where battles were fought for the nation’s freedom, where heroes were born and left their mark in history, Montemor has kept itself hugely humble until today.
Start by the ex-libris of Montemor, its ancient castle. Most likely built over the ruins of a remote Muslim fortification, Montemor-o-Novo Castle was rebuilt throughout the centuries. And it was also the set of some of the greatest moments in the history of Portugal. In 1496, this was the stage for the final plans of the sea crossing to India by Vasco da Gama.
