Castelo de Alcoutim

Placed hanging over the river, it should have been inhabited during the Iron Age and in the beginning of the roman occupation, accordingly to archaeological digs. Built in the XIV century as a frontier defence, it was altered in the XVII century. Inside is a small museum showing archaeological founds and traces of the constructions found during the digs.
