Visiting Trancoso is reliving Portugal's history. Today's peace and quiet in its centuries-old castle contrast with the alarms and fears experienced by people of other times. It was a border town, the stage for ﬁghts and battles that were decisive to the formation and independence of the kingdom. Cherished by kings, it received important privileges. King Afonso Henriques granted it a municipal charter and King Afonso III a fair charter. King Dinis commissioned the construction of the walls that still protect a town where Christians and Jews lived side by side.
