  • The fortress of Jerumenha is a fortification of mixed structure created at the time of the restoration when the castle was judged insufficient and reinforced with the addition of star-shaped bastions according to the dictates of the time. Unfortunately it is not in the best condition of conservation but also worth visiting because it allows a good view over the Guadiana river that forms the border and beyond.

  • Extraordinary space but that is abandoned, needs restoration and could be a serious case. Worth a visit carefully and with time to explore each port each entry

  • Fortress in the town of Juromenha is on the steep, steep shore of the Alqueva reservoir. The settlement here was founded by the Celts. In the 12th century, King Afonso Henriques reconquered this land and the Castle from the Moors. The castle was reconstructed in more recent times, especially in the 17th century, when the war for independence from Spain (Guerra de restauraçao) were built fortaleza-system fortifications typical for that time. The fortress, which from a distance looks rather monumental and inside looks somewhat disappointingly, most of the buildings within the fortress are dilapidated, bastions of fortress survived relatively well. With them, and with the main tower of the Castle, feature views over the reservoir, on the other side of which, by the way, the Spanish Earth. I was curious to explore the territory of the fortress. You can walk along its bastions, climb to the main tower of the Castle. On the territory of the fortress are what is left of the two churches and other buildings (or their remnants), which it is difficult to determine, but you need to be careful while observing these objects, they may collapse)))
