Vila Nova Milfontes History

The village dates from the year 1468, founded by the king D.João II. The first inhabitants were prisoners sentenced by minor delicts and fifty years after the village establishment the population was no more than ten families. The village was frequently attacked by pirates and a fortress was built in 1602. The fortress is commonly called Saint Clement's Castle.

Vila Nova Milfontes Description

Just 32 km (20 miles) southwest of Santiago do Cacém, and 186 km (115 miles) south of Lisbon it's located in the Alentejo west coast.

This small village with a 5000 resident population has a great demand during holidays due to its fine beaches with clear water and natural beauty. Moreover, the surrounding area offers ecological tourism, paragliding training, a small safari park and beautiful hideouts with small waterfalls.

Vila Nova de Milfontes means New town of a thousand springs. This is why it is known as the three lies village, as it is old, it is a village and it has no springs. Vila Nova de Milfontes has a beautiful estuary that gives shelter to several species of birds and marine life. Moreover, wild boars and foxes can be found in the surrounding woods. There is also an aquaculture centre nearby in Moinho da Asneira.

It's definately a good stopover in lower Alentejo as you're heading south to the Algarve is the little beach town of Vila Nova de Milfontes. At the wide mouth of the Mira River, the sleepy resort is attracting more visitors because of the soft white-sand beaches that line both sides of the river. There are no other attractions and nothing to do here but relax, or perhaps search for antiques.

The castle that once protected the area from Moroccan and Algerian pirates has been restored and is now an inn. After a day on the beach, you can head south to even more beaches.
