GHOSTS OF THE PAST

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - SCENIC BEAUTY -

Celts, Ro­mans, Visig­oths, Moors and Chris­tians all left their mark on the Ibe­rian na­tion. Here, you can gaze upon 20,000-year-old stone carvings in the Vila Nova de Foz Coa, watch the sun­set over mys­te­ri­ous mega­liths out­side Evora or lose yourself in the elab­o­rate cor­ri­dors of UNESCO World Her­itage sites in To­mar, Belem, Al­cobaca or Batalha. You can pack an itin­er­ary vis­it­ing palaces set above mist-cov­ered wood­lands, craggy clifftop cas­tles and stun­ningly pre­served me­dieval town cen­tres.

SPE­CIAL BLEND: The cin­e­matic col­umns of Tem­plo Ro­mano.
