This site was originally occupied by the Romans. It was an important castle on the frontier in medieval Portugal. One of the few castles you can be dropped off by a bus nearby.
This castle is worth the time if only for the breathtaking views of Serra de Estrela and the valley it perches over. Some historical interest as well and it is well restored
Not a huge castle/fort, but typical for these smaller towns. They have updated it with an amphitheater- would be a nice place to see a performance. We were there just at sunset and the views of the surrounding area and the castle were gorgeous. The castle is illuminated, so…
A very well conserved castle, in a beautiful village, with a lot of attractions at walking distance from it.
Very interesting visit of a small castle, very well conserved. Understanding where and why these constructs were built is a very interesting and this castle is a good example. A must see in Belmonte.
