In 1255 King D. Afonso III ordered the erection of Arronches Castle upon the ruins of a Roman fortress. Under D. Denis reign the castle was rebuilt and its tower was remodelled. It suffered several attacks during the 1383-1385 crisis and the Restoration War (1640/62). There are still some wall curtains left, as well as three bastions and the keep.
