Belver was the first castle built by the Hospitallers in our country, in order to defend the border territory of the Tagus valley, and it was one of the most imposing costles built by the Order in Portugal during the Lower Middle Ages. It originated in 1194, the year D. Sancho I donated to Afonso Paes - the Order's prior - the so-called lands of Gimdintesta, on the condition that a castle be built there.
