“Walls with History” | 2017
The Municipality of Sabugal will once again promote the theme event “Walls with History”, in the Historic Village of Sortelha, from September 22 to 24.
This year’s edition will transport us to the Reinado of D. Afonso IV, O Bravo (1325-1357), considering that the vicissitudes of the maintenance of the border defined by D. Dinis, his father and all the That D. Afonso IV was involved throughout the life, standing out those that he fought against his bastard brothers, mainly Afonso Sanches.
Starting from the medieval village of Sortelha, we will try to approach the medieval man’s perspective of the world with all the inaccuracies, myths and legends that ignorance feeds, it was in this fact, more concretely in the image “L’image du monde” by Gautier From Metz that we sought inspiration for this year’s edition.
Sortelha is the ideal setting for an event of this nature … nowhere will you feel as transported to the Middle Ages as on our Walls with History.
