Sweltering Castelo Branco isn’t Portugal's most charming provincial capital but makes a good jumping-off point for outlying attractions such as Monsanto and Idanha-a-Velha. The best reasons to visit are the town's excellent, ever-increasing museums, the result of its efforts to become a centre of culture. There are some charming medieval streets clustered in its heart, and the town’s modern development includes an attractive series of tree-lined squares and boulevards.
