MONSANTO A aldeia mais portuguesa de Portugal Apresentação de GUIDA PINTO

UMA DAS ALDEIAS HISTÓRICAS DE PORTUGAL Pertencente ao concelho de Idanha-a-Nova, esta aldeia histórica está edificada na encosta de uma elevação de 760m de altitude.

Domina uma vastíssima área plana em seu redor, tendo, por isso, tido desde sempre enorme importância estratégica.

Os Romanos denominaram esta elevação como Mons Sanctus (Monte Santo), nome que a aldeia veio a adoptar.

A aldeia é muito harmoniosa, constituída por pequenas casas em granito.

Incrustadas na penedia, muitas casas aproveitam os enormes pedregulhos e escarpas do monte para paredes e chão.
