Castelo de Aljezur

Monuments | Military Architecture

It was the genesis of the village of Aljezur in the Islamic period. It integrated the defensive system of Silves in the 12th and 13th centuries, passing with the Christian reconquest to the possession of the Military Order of Santiago da Espada and integrating the Portuguese territory. It slowly lost its strategic importance and in the 16th century was already abandoned.
