  • This castle is among the most beautiful castles in Portugal and its an emblematic of Portuguese medieval military architecture. It used to serve as a connection between Lisbon and Braga and in the middle of the 9th century (868), Alfonso III of León created the administrative and military region, that he called Terra de Santa Maria, he laid its defences in the military fortress that existed there, in Civitas Sancta Mariae. It contains a quite big protected area surrounding the castle which its also great to visit!
  • Excellent place to visit. Be sure to watch the intro movie when you first enter the castle to get to know its history. Climb to the top to get an amazing view to the city of Santa Maria da Feira.
  • Very interesting, historic castle (castelo)
  • Beautiful castle on mountain top, overlooking the town below. Visit at night for a really great view.
  • Amazing place to visit!
