Castelo de Loulé

As so happens in several towns of the Algarve, on can see the presence of various peoples in Loulé: phoenicians, carthaginian, romans and moors, who take over the city in 715. The Christian reconquest occurs in 1249 and in 1268 the fortress is reconstructed and enlarged. Later, in the 16th century, it is rebuilt. Currently, there are still some vestiges in the Rua da Barbacã, Largo da Matriz and Rua Rainha D. Leonor.
