Montalegre is a magic place. Traditions and natural beauty didn't got lost with time evolution, but with them remained the difficulties. "Isolation" made it happen, it's a long drive to get there, with long curved roads in the middle of mountains and more mountains. Young people left a long time ago, opportunity waited in the city, behind were left the older, and for this reason some villages look like ghost towns.
All this made it happen, Montalegre kept it's beauty. This land is an unforgettable unique place in North Portugal.
