  • A well-preserved Castle, the result of recent works. Exhibition on the ground floor of a panoply of props from past centuries. Good access to the upper floors, including a lift for persons with reduced mobility.

  • Strengthening in this place was built by ancient Romans and actively developed when Muslim rulers. When in the course of the Reconquista Castle departed Portuguese, King Pedro I initiated the restructuring and strengthening of the Fort, as marble slab reads at the main gate of the Castle. Then, one of Portugal's Kings gave the castle of Nuno Pereira Alvareshu, the great Portuguese Warrior, which became subsequently the Holy ... Then as a result of family marital relationship with Pereira Dukes of Bragança, the Castle again became a Royal, and long was used as a prison. Although, like many of the fortress of Portugal, during the war of independence from Spain in the 17th century, proved worthy in the case. Now the castle is in perfect condition, thanks to the patronage of the Foundation of Braganza ". It has a rectangular layout. Its walls are made of blocks of slate and granite and crowned six towers. Superbly preserved and vnutrizamkovye built 44-metre tall donjon, Commandant's House, Platz, keys and other objects
