Castelo de Belver

Circular Castle facing the Tagus River, built in 1194 by Dom Afonso Parents and rebuilt in 1390 for Dom Nuno Álvares Pereira. Keeps the cloths of the wall, in part ameados and with traces of turrets. The gateway was built in the 15th century and has an arc of volta redonda. Inside the castle is the chapel of São Brás that presents a nice 17th century altarpiece. Belver Castle was the starting point for several actions against the Moors, having also served in support of d. João I, during the war of independence.
