Lamego Castle was built in a mountain, fitting the soil characteristics. It shows military, Romanic and Gothic influences, as far as architecture is concerned. The fact that the cistern is far away from the citadel is particularly striking about the castle. It is surrounded by wall remains nowadays. The 12th century keep and the cistern still remain. The construction of the castle began in the 13th with the goal of protecting the city inhabitants. In the 17th century, a niche in homage to Our Lady Nossa Senhora da Graça was erected. Two centuries later, a bell was placed (conceived by Mateus Gomes). In 1920, a new clock was placed in the keep and the bells were moved to Church Santa Maria de Almacave. (National Monument)
