    I got to the campus Alegrete solely to see the Castle. It is believed that it was founded in the 13th century, its importance has increased in the 17th century, in connection with the war of Portugal with Spain (Guerra de Restauraçao) and lost in the 18th century, after which the castle was gradually collapsing. At the moment, the walls of the Castle are in very good condition. The castle of a small, none of the towers has not survived, there are only the ruins of torre de menagem. From the walls of the castle with fantastic views of the surrounding area. Admission is free.

    Views of the Sierra in 360 degrees. Free entrance. It runs fast. It's nothing of this world. The castle of Marvão is much better preserved.

    Alegrete, in Serra de São Mamede Natural Park was incorporated into Portugal in the 13th century and taken by d. Dinis village sending build the Castle, the wall and a watchtower. Recent and properly restored is a point of great historical interest, offering beautiful panoramas. The city is a charm and a fine example of the way of life in the Alentejo. Not to be missed. There's a whole structure for the amateur bird watching.
