Built in the 15th century, Ourém Castle became quite monumental under the command of D. Afonso, 4th Duke of Ourém and son of the 1st Duke of Bragança. This mudejar Gothic fortress was quite damaged by 1755 earthquake, but it still preserves nowadays its former beauty. The ancient urban area, located within its walls, dates back to the Middle Ages and it is particularly striking. The castle has three towers, as well as an enormous vault-shaped cistern at the middle. (National Monument)
