Montemor-o-Novo
The Essential
A sleepy town in Alentejo and an agricultural market, Montemor-o-Novo is laid out at the foot of a hill that is crowned by the ruins of a fortified medieval town. The ramparts, which date back to the Roman period, look out over the countryside dotted with olive trees. It is also the birth town of Saint John of God (1495-1550), a Franciscan monk who founded the Order of the Brothers Hospitallers.
