The existence of this fortress is prior to the ruling of King D. Afonso Henriques. It was restored by King D. Dinis in 1294, who added doors surrounded by strong towers to it. King D. João VI also carried out improvement works in this castle, but its magnificence did not linger in time, because a gunpowder magazine exploded here, destroying the whole castle. It turned into ruins, as we can still observe nowadays. It has only kept the partially damaged keep, some wall curtains, shattered battlements and the Treason Door (Porta da Traição). (National Monument)
