  • Evoramonte is a small village of a few hundred inhabitants but deserves a pass by the impressive castle and its walls. The castle was founded in the 12th century but the rebuilding is manuelina and gives it an aggressive air with the four towers integrated into its quadrangle and tapering upward. From Evoramonte dominates also with view a vast territory.

  • Castle whose construction began after this land was reconquered from the Moors in the 12th century, in the early 14th century was built the fortress wall surrounding all settlement. In the 16th century, the castle was destroyed and rebuilt soon zemeltrjaseniem in the style of the Italian Renaissance. I do not know how to look at those veremena Castle, but a modern version of my eye was not. It can be seen that the Castle plastered. It is logical that in the 16th century no one wall fortresses nor shtukaturil. Apparently, this is the result of the work of our contemporaries, and this was done without proper respect for antiquity. Actually, the castle is the entire architectural ensemble, and a building is only the Paço Ducal residence of the then owner of the settlement. Now there is a museum which is open in summer only 2 days a week, and winter-only one day a week. On the day of my visit, it was closed. The walls of the Castle, by the way, I am pleased, it looks very natural, ancient, it can climb and get around almost the whole of its perimeter. Good views of the surroundings, the Castle because is on quite a high Hill.

  • Great view & location was not open when we visited so can not score higher.
  • Employee was on the phone and ignored uswhen we tried to buy tickets. Returned after viewing outside and it was closed for lunch. :-( Castle itself is unusual structure. We left before they reopened
  • Castle with the famous Bragança rope and knot made out of masonry. Spectacular view from the top. Closed on Saturdays!
  • Its payed and the lady is not nice at all. Anyways the postcatds costs 10cents
  • Interesting building to visit, as a little different to the normal of castles..
