Castelo de Penedono
It is a military monument of great beauty, classified as a National Monument since 1910. It dominates the landscape from a height of 930 meters, in the middle of Serra de Serigo. Built in the 14th century, its current construction is probably the result of 16th century alterations to the original medieval castle. It is a citadel with a triangular plan and a door flanked by two turrets, with small balconies above, supported by corbels and crowned with prismatic battlements.
Inside the small castle, there is not much to see, but the magnificent landscape that surrounds it is more than enough reason for a visit.
