MORE INFORMATION

Description of the place: Alegrete is a locality of Portalegre council, situated approximately13km away from the city in the southeast direction in the western slope of São Mamede mountain. It has two thousand inhabitants in present day. The houses have preserved their traditional design, namely in the ancient zone, comprised between Coreto square and the Medieval castle. Founded by the Romans, Alegrete was repopulated by D. Dinis, who repaired the former castle built during the Muslim period. The Clock Tower rises in the place of the former wall door. It is worth your while to walk along the street labyrinth filled with flowering houses towards castle’s remains. From the top of the walls, you will enjoy a superb view over the borderline between mountain and Alentejo fields.
