Alter do Chão Castle was built in the 14th century under D. Pedro I reign in a period of military fortifications because of the Spanish threat that came from the East and not anymore as a defensive strategy against the Moors. In the 15th century this castle became property of Bragança House. By that time, it turned into a fortified manor house. The entrance is made through a towerlike door. The 44m high keep rises upon the village’s houses.
