  • At the top of the Hill is a castle with a 360° view on the lands of the mondego River, rice fields, with its migratory birds, also see Chen in the distance and the old part of town of montemor. You can reach by car near the entrance to the Castle or you can choose the stairs or (escalators, which helps especially the elderly), Moorish Castle but with some particularities, including the home of the infantas where it was decided the death of Inês de castro. Next to the ruin is a pequenz shop/cafe with terrace. the castle is open to the 17:30 h. Be sure to visit the old part of town with its monuments and historic houses. is close to coimbra, Rota Cadiz, figueira da foz, and near a park of wild animals.
