This medieval castle was rebuilt by Bragança House in 1439. Paço dos Gamas (Gamas Palace) was erected here later (Vasco da Gama, who discovered the maritime route to India, was also Vidigueira Count). Only ruins remained from the palace and the squared clock tower. From this spot, one has a beautiful general view over Vidigueira.
