    SORTELHA VILLAGE

    Aldeia de Sortelha

    It’s the imposing castel, on top of its 760 meters of altitude, that gives us the first announcement that we are arriving to the Portuguese historic village of Sortelha. To step on the first rocks of the village, you must pass through the Porta Falsa, ou Árabe (Fake or Arabic Door), that welcomes all the visitors.

    Sortelha will surprise you at every look, for seeming to have come out of a kings, queens and knights fairytale and for being stuffed with stone houses that have survived time and remain perfectly preserved.

    É o imponente castelo que dá o primeiro aviso de que estamos a chegar à aldeia histórica de Sortelha. Para pisar as primeiras pedras de Sortelha é preciso passar a Porta Falsa, ou Árabe, que dá as boas-vindas aos visitantes.

    Sortelha surpreende a cada olhar, por parecer saída de uma história de reis e rainhas e por estar recheada de casas de pedra que sobreviveram ao tempo.
