Three border markers are located next to the meeting point of Portuguese highway N256-1 and Spanish highway EX-107 between Reguengos de Monsaraz, Portugal and Villanueva del Fresno, Spain.

Border Marker no 912

Main marker no 912.

On the southern side of the marker we found another number, and it appeared that this stone probably earlier served as marker no. 911 until it was replaced with a new and more decorated column.

As above.

Marker 912 was located upon a small hill.
