Stronghold of Christian Conquer, Lanhoso Castle stands out as the main historical reference of Póvoa de Lanhoso region. It is placed upon Portugal’s greatest granitic stele, surrounded by Cávado and Ave rivers. Its origins go back to the Pre-Roman period, preserving some quite unique vestiges of this time. The elliptical barbican wall is surrounded by battlements and the access to the stone stairs is engraved in the stone. The 13th century 10m high keep is particularly striking. The main door, surrounded by two towers, has a segmental arch, resembling the typical defensive solutions that were used in construction during the Gothic period.
