Castelo de Castelo Mendo

Taking the village of Mendo suffered several occupations, Dinis decided to rebuild and enlarge the wall around the village. This castle has suffered a blow with the war of restoration and with liberal reform, in 1855, when the County was extinguished. Subsequently entered in full decline, due to the population who used the stones of the castle to build their homes. Nowadays there are only a few traces of arched doorways and a cistern.
