Crato Castle, former Azinheira Castle, dates back to the 13th century. It is located in the highest point of Crato Village. It was donated in the 13th century to the Hospital Order. In 1330 Crato village was head of Malta Order and in the 15th century the castle was reconstructed and the urban wall was erected. Crato Castle deeply changed in the 17th century due to the construction of the bastions and the platforms for artillery purposes. Recent maintenance works along with the creation of a cultural centre have upgraded this location.
