Castelo de Lamego

This castle was built on an ancient Lusitanian castro that the Romans fortified. The primitive Castle include the Alcazaba with the keep, the vaulted cistern and two doors, the door of the Fires and the Puerta del Sol, which define the structure of the old village wall. The cistern is near a stretch of Hadrian's wall. During the 16th and 17th centuries the Tower served as a town hall. Featured, in the Puerta del Sol, for a century, window dated 1642.
