This is the most intensively explored fort hill in Portugal. Its origins date back to the Iron Age, later occupied by Romans. Citânia de Briteiros is located 10km north from Guimarães near Caldas das Taipas. Most part of its heritage is exhibited in Museum Sociedade Martins Sarmento, located in the city. From the top of this ancient fort hill, the view up to Ave river is fabulous. Four wall lines were discovered, as well as vestiges of over one hundred and fifty clearly defined streets and squares.
