Castelo de Belmonte

As we approach the entrance to the village, we come across its Castle, classified as a National Monument. Pedro Álvares Cabral, the most famous inhabitant of Belmonte, was born here. The fort was built in the 13th century, at the behest of D. Afonso III, and in 1466 it became the residence of the Cabral family. One of its most emblematic points is the Manueline-style window from the 16th century, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the valleys and mountains that surround the village.
