Montemor-o-Velho Castle is situated at a hill, where over two thousand years ago a fortress was erected. The Roman influence is still to be seen at the bottom of the keep. However, the castle was rebuilt many times over the centuries. The most important works date back to the 14th century, when the weep hole was constructed. It opens in two doors: Porta da Peste (Plague Door) and Porta da Senhora do Rosário. This National Monument is set within a beautiful landscape of far-reaching fertile plains next to Mondego river fields.
