The enchanting village of Monsanto is located on the side of a mountain in Portugal and is home to an incredible sight. With houses squeezed between gigantic boulders and tiny streets carved through the rocks, the village's appearance hasn't changed in centuries. In 1938 Monsanto was voted “the most Portuguese village in Portugal” in a national contest and, since then, building restrictions have allowed it to remain a living museum. Although it's not easy to reach Monsanto by public transportation, its atmosphere and immense panorama is definitely worth the drive.
