Torres Novas Castle was erected under the ruling period of D. Sancho I, allegedly upon an older fortress. Under the ruling of D. Fernando, the castle was restored. From 1374 to 1376, eleven towers were built, which were later destroyed by 1755 earthquake, along with castle’s walls. During French invasions, the castle decayed increasingly and it was totally abandoned. Nowadays it presents a polygonal plan, as well as some 14th century towers, including the keep.
