Castelo de Noudar

After serious problems caused by the Castilian domination, d. Dinis gave the order of Aviz Noudar, forcing her to build a strong Castle and granting the town many privileges. Thus, the castle was built in 1308, by order of d. Br. Afonso, master of the order of Aviz, and suffered over the centuries various repairs. Consists of hexagonal wall and fence, reinforced by the cubelos regular spaces, with two gates defended by two barbicans and two shutters. Recently, have been undertaken several archaeological investigations, with a view to the integration and rehabilitation of the origins of this fortification.
