Nisa, Portalegre This is an indescribably beautiful area distinguished by the waters of the important River Tagus that marks its banks in geomorphological and historical terms like nowhere else. The imposing quartz crest of Portas de Ródão, carved out by the force of the waters, is a favourite setting for film-shooting. The landscape is marked by thousands of years of human occupation and cone-shaped piles of boulders along the banks bear witness to the gold panning that took place in the river. Visiting Portalegre is about visiting a whole cluster of northern Alentejo towns, each with their own tale to tell, and with Portalegre at their centre. The region contains a wealth of historical monuments and anecdotes, awe-inspiring views from the fortified hilltop towns and a good smattering of prehistoric treasures to boot. For the energetic or hot, a host of dams (barragem) offer the perfect opportunity for water sports and a cooling swim in the hot summer months of the Portuguese interior. Firstly, Portalegre is found near the Spanish border on the green slopes of the São Mamede mountains, which now constitute a national park complete with marked paths for walkers and a wealth of interesting inhabitants from wild boar and red deer to vultures and eagles. At over 3000 feet, the peak of São Mamede is a short drive away along a road full of bends and spectacular views. The town’s serious fortifications have seen much action, withholding a five month siege by Dom Dinis in the 13th century and many others in the meantime. During the Peninsular War of the early 1800s, British troops on the Portuguese side were based here.
