This castle is located at the centre of a hill, west from the current town of Santiago do Cacém. It was definitively conquered in 1217 by D. Afonso II, who has built it and donated it to the Order of Santiago. As time went by, it became increasingly damaged, since it lost its military purpose. The 1755 earthquake caused even more damage. The current wall has a typically Islamic rectangular shape. Inside there are vestiges of the citadel, of a cistern well and of other constructions. From this castle, the view over Grândola mountain range is absolutely magnificent. (National Monument)
