In the remote interior of Portugal, a little bit separated from the main roads, there's a small village of a couple of hundred people, stretching from a chapel atop the hill, and a castle.

This small castle, built in the 14th century, has a long history in the wars against the Spanish, and after being used as residence, prison and cemetery, is is now well preserved as an historic monument ans may be visited.

The experts say that it is the best example of Gothic military architecture in Portugal, with its geometry already prepared to the use of firearms.
