More on

Vilar Formoso is a small Portuguese town and the main Portuguese-Spanish border-crossing.

During World War II, thousands of Jewish refugees attempted to reach Lisbon and emigrate overseas via Vilar Formoso.

In 2017, the Museum "Vilar Formoso – Frontier of Peace, Memorial of the Refugees and the Consul Aristides de Sousa Mendes" was inaugurated to remember the refugees who had been to Vilar Formoso hoping to cross the border.
