Castelo de Amieira do Tejo

Castle built by d. Álvaro Gonçalves Pereira in 1350, having been the target of several modifications in the following centuries. This castle was a vast line of forts and watchtowers that protected the much attacked banks of Tagus River. Its architectural conception indicates a function-oriented protection and refuge of the people. This contradicted granite Castle is an important symbol of Portuguese military architecture of the time. Deployed in a privileged location, on the banks of the Tagus River, has a nice panoramic view. Has the shape of a quadrangle and is flanked by four towers. The Chapel, located outside the walls, was built two centuries after the Castle, probably by Dom António Prior do Crato.
