A stylish medieval town with Roman, Moor and Christian heritage. Great place to spend a few days enjoying the historic sites, local food (recommend Time Out for friendly atmosphere) and cafes (recommened Cafe 35- great patron; and Cafe Arcada- great pastries and 1950s atmosphere). Try the gelados at Gelateria Zoka.
Have fun discovering your own favourites: the old town is a rabbit warren of narrow streets that can easily be walked around, but make for some pretty extreme driving that's not for the faint hearted.
The whole place is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
About 1.5 hours east of Lisbon on the way to the Spanish border.
