  • Castelo de Alcácer do Sal-was built in the late 12th century, when the land is still dominated by the Moors. If you believe the information from the Internet, the Castle once had more than 30 towers. King Alfonso Henriques reconquered this land in the middle of the XII century, but soon the territory was once again is occupied musulmana, then it and the construction of the Castle, which became an important strategic point. The castle was finally captured from the Moors under King Afonso II in 1217 g. I must say I was expecting from this castle. Restored only a relatively small part of the fortress wall, adjacent to the hotel Pousada d. Afonso II. And restored, in my opinion, without proper respect from those who worked on restoration works. Even from afar you can see that plastered walls, and some where the plaster falls off. Who in the middle ages shtukaturil walls? Thanks to its restoration works of this kind, the monuments of antiquity become similar to failed buildings modern builders.

  • The interior, the walls, the cloister, the chapel are all worthwhile visiting. The views are spectacular over one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal.  more »
  • The Alcacèr Castle was founded before the year 1000 and although renovated in ages keeps the Islamic setting with its elliptical shape roughly following the terrain. Has now been converted into a hotel but in addition to seeing it from the outside you can visit a Museum in the foundations and even snooping in the garden to better see the towers remain. Nice view.
