Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
The Castle of Viana do Alentejo is a gothic castle constructed during the reconquest and settlement of the central region of the Portuguese Alentejo, located in the parish of Viana do Alentejo, municipality of the same name. Although a relatively low-profile design, in comparison to its contemporaries, the structure served the period of strife associated with expansion of Portuguese forces/authority into the southern Algarve.HistoryThe castle was founded in 1313; on establishing a foral began a process of restoration and refurbishment in 1940, which included repairs to the battlements and walls. A return to this task occurred between 1970 and 1974, and again, in 1976, in addition to repairs to the towers.Our Viana do Alentejo vacation route planner makes visiting Castelo de Viana do Alentejo and other Viana do Alentejo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
