Almourol Castle


FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

Almourol castle is one of the more romantic castles in Portugal caused mainly by it’s setting on a small island in the centre of the river Tagus close to the villages Tanços and Praia do Ribatejo.
The castle exists since Roman times and was used by the Moors and later by the Templar knights as a strategic point in the Reconquista.
The exact origins of the castle are unknown but findings on the site show Roman, Moorish and Templar occupation. After the Reconquista (the regaining of portugal into Iberian hands after the Moorish occupation) the castle fell into ruin as it was no longer needed as a strategic point.
In the 19th century it was rebuild and reinvented by idealist romantics and today you can visit the castle using a small ferry boat.
Close to the castle are the train station of Almourol and in front a small terraced cafe with a view of the castle.
