Muralhas de Serpa
This military fortress already existed during the Roman Period, although there are no records concerning its destruction and reconstruction. The present fortress was built under the orders of D. Dinis and was composed by a powerful Castle and by a double towered wall. There still remain some important traces from the wall and one can point out the one which is topped by a large arcade from the aqueduct that is extended until a monumental Moorish waterwheel. During the War of the Spanish Succession the walls underwent several damages. It is worth to mention the Moura and Beja Door and the imposing Manor House of Marquises of Ficalho.
