Stone Village In Portugal

Thursday, October 13, 2011


Holy smokes! This enchanting gem is hidden amongst the Serra da Estrela mountains in a little Portuguese village called Monsanto. In 1938, it was declared the "most Portuguese village in Portugal" for their incredibly ravishing structure and it remains untouched as a living museum. It was built amongst rocks with houses literally squeezed between humongous boulders. Mind-blowing, isn’t it? Even the tiny streets were carved through the stones. Lovelies, how mesmerizing is this place? Wouldn’t you love to visit? xo

P.S: Turf houses in Iceland and fairytale home in Wales. Love!
