Muralhas da Cidade da Covilhã

This Castle has a Roman foundation, probably with origins on a Lusitanian Castro that suffered sackings and destruction throughout the time. From the primitive mediaeval fortress it only survived some chunks from the wall some of them integrated in others constructions and not always visible and traces from doors and towers: Door of Sun, Door of São Vicente, Comarca Arch and an octagonal turret. The stones from the Castle were later used to build bigger constructions such as the Royal Factory for Cloths and the Council Castle.
