[kl-bogel] Monsanto in Portugal

In Portugal there is a modest amazing places that can strike at the heart of even the experienced traveler. And the "most Portuguese village of Portugal" - Monsanto, without a doubt, one of them. This small village is literally "hanging" in the middle of the slope alone granite cliffs (758 meters).

1. View of the Holy Mountain (as translated into Russian the name Monsanto), studded with huge stones, called so suddenly, that is amazing. But it - flowers and berries - in front. A short climb to the Monsanto and here it is - a fairy tale. Words are powerless to convey the charm of a small mountain village.

2. Portuguese proverb: "a Monsanto never know if a stone is born out of the house or house of stone" are very closely reflects the originality of the local "architecture."

3. The boulders are actually walls and roofs of some houses and narrow winding streets and very similar to the giant slalom track with the flags of huge granite blocks.

4. Looking at it all in my head involuntarily slips idea that there is a long time ago lived giants.

5. Then they departed, leaving scattered around the boulders - the traces of their "valiant fun." Unknown sculptor carefully walked around them incisors of rain and wind.

6. The result is an amazing creation, in which appear the characteristics of animals, birds and human faces.

7. Not far from the parking stands Clock Tower (Torre do Relógio) or Lucano Torre (Torre de Lucano). It is crowned with a copy of the Silver Rooster Awards, which Monsanto has received for winning the contest in 1938 at the most, "a Portuguese village."
