Photographer's Note

And now I'm showing one of the old granite houses of the village.
Situated in the region of Castelo Branco, not far from the Spanish border, Monsanto is a really beautiful village. Its houses are made of granite and the top of the Hill of Monsanto,where it's situated, is crowned by its powerful medieval castle, also made of granite.
In 1939, this village was considered the most Portuguese village of Portugal and the prize was a cock made of silver (a copy is placed at the top of the bell tower, in the village).
