Aldeias Históricas de Portugal



The Historical Village of Idanha-a-Velha is one of the most important archaeological sites in the country due to its remarkable set of preserved ruins. Its natural surroundings include the Tagus International Natural Park and the Penha Garcia Iconological Park. One of the oldest and most irresistible delicacies in the area are the borrachões, biscuits prepared with a little white wine and brandy. In Idanha-a-Velha there is also wheat bread, baked in the community oven (which goes wonderfully with goat cheese, also commonly found in this Historical Village), and dishes such as rice with rabbit, broth and stews made from gizzards of kid, goat or lamb.
