Castelo de Aljezur (Aljezur Castle)

An Arab military building dating from the 10th century, located on the top of a hill. It has a long stretch of wall with two towers, and on the inside a vaulted cistern of Arab origin, as well as the remains of houses and barracks.
Aljezur Castle was taken by the Christians in the 13th century and fulfilled an important defensive role until the 18th century.
Despite the fact that the building is not well preserved, visitors can enjoy the wonderful view.
