It was built by order of King Dinis, between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, probably on an ancient Roman hill fort. Belonging to the Order of St. James, it included the citadel and wall that surrounded the village. Their remains are found on a hilltop, over the vast plain of Ourique. On the prevailing sections of the wall, was built a garden with a belvedere and a pond in the center. (Property of Public Interest)
