This borderline village is located on a granite area surrounded by vines, orchards and woods, on the right bank of the Erges river. The steep, narrow streets hide ancient vestiges, such as the old fortress (probably a roman watchtower recovered by the first dinasty) or the roman bridge (with five arches and 92 metres). It was once the siege of the parish, as may be seen by its manuelin pillory. Nonetheless, the parish was extinct in 1836 and later became a part of Idanha-a-Nova. Other interesting spots: the mother church, the chapels (Saint Marinha, Saint Pedro and Saint Sebastião), the fountains and the communal oven. The iron objects and the embroideries are a part of this village's traditions.
