This 470m high granite column was probably occupied during Pre-History and Proto-History. However, it was not until 1214 that the castle was built by the Templar Order. The construction of the castle lasted until 1230. It was changed under D. Dinis reign. Nowadays, you can still observe wall remains and the keep of the former commanders’ palace. Church Santa Maria do Castelo, the first main church of the region, is located inside the wall perimeter. From the top of the castle, the view is superb, covering the whole city, the surrounding fields and afar in the north Estrela and Gardunha mountains.
