Welcome to Almeida

When its military functions were largely suspended in 1927, Almeida settled into weedy obscurity. Nowadays, the fortified old village – designated as a national monument and recently scrubbed up for tourism – is a place of great charm: the town may have the disquieting calm of a museum, but it also has enough history and muscular grandeur to set the imagination humming.
