  • Strolling through Almeida, we retreat back in time and give even more value to those who lived in the village in times of war. The village in general is well maintained, clean, well preserved. To note the houses that are in the process of recovery. I'm sorry about those in an advanced state of degradation. Subpoena to the owners to recover them would be defensible. I enjoyed the Mother Church, Mercy, walled doors, double wall waist, Freire de Andrade house, governor's house, etc. I want to thank Prof. Moutinho Borges for the possibility of visiting Almeida through his eyes and knowledge.

  • Just walking around the walled city of Almeida is a treat. Lots to see and enjoy on every corner. From cobblestone streets to the fortress gates... a beautiful corner of the Beira  more »
  • It is a Fortified Historical Complex that since the seventeenth century, during the Portuguese Restoration War, was considered to be the largest and best built by man. Shaped like a 12-pointed star (Double Hexagon) and with a perimeter of 2.5 km, protected by a moat of 10 m wide or higher, it protected more than 5,000 infants and their corresponding horses who defended themselves with a hundred cannons of which today are preserved about c Uantos in their walls. The Double Gates of San Francisco or the Cross, the Gate of San Antonio, the Military Museum, the ruins of the Castle or the Bastion of San Francisco, are some of the important buildings that are worth visiting. Portuguese, Spanish, French and British, have had a number of skirmishes, sieges and assaults over centuries past. Pin.
