Trancoso The Essential
Interesting
The fortified medieval wall of Trancoso is situated, intact, at the top of the plateau which extends the Serra da Estrela to the north. You have an unrestricted view from the rocky hill at the entrance to the town, near a wayside cross. The glory days of this small town were in the 13C and 14C and in particular when King Dinis married Isabel of Aragon on 24th June 1282.
