Monte Mozinho is a fortified settlement with three lines of walls, built on the summit of a hill, and with an area of ​​over 200.000 m2. Its urban design combines the hill fort tradition with the Roman culture, shown in the courtyard houses with circular shapes and foyers and in the regular layout of the streets. This town was occupied during a fairly long period of time that spanned between the 1st and the 5th century.

Theres a legend, that the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo’s Ship from Star Wars, was inspired by the design of this old settlement existing in Monte Mozinho 🙂
