Situated at the top of the hill, Avis Castle stands out as an extraordinary viewpoint. The whole village has developed from this point. Both the castle and the urban wall were built in the first half of the 13th century and would later be renovated by Constable D. Pedro, namely two centuries afterwards. The castle bears Medieval features along with transition elements (such as the bastions) and modern elements like its bastion-like structures. Three of the former six towers remain today, as well as some wall curtains, used in modern constructions. South from Évora there are the remains of a ravelin, giving place to the flourishing garden Passeio do Mestre de Avis.
