This castle was probably built before 960, but later D. Dinis found it urgent to rebuild it, in order to ensure the security of the population. It had one of the best borderline defence walls, which was built upon a former Roman war square, actually comprising fifteen towers. From the 18th century onwards this castle entered a declining age. In present time, only two (well-preserved) towers and the remains of a wall along the mountain have lingered. (National Trust Building)
