Museu Histórico Militar de Almeida

It is in the old town's casemates that the Military Historical Museum was created, an interactive space in which the History of Portugal is reconstituted, from medieval times to the most recent centuries, with a focus on the Peninsular Wars and, of course, on the invasion and siege of Almeida. Located in the basement of the Baluarte de S. João de Deus, within the walled area, the Casemates are 20 underground houses, made up of a perfect round vault, with the purpose of military defense. They were also known as Quartéis Velhos, given the lack of barracks to house infantry.
