Castelo de Santa Maria da Feira

Monuments | Military Architecture

The Castelo de Santa Maria da Feira is one of the most notable Portuguese monuments in the way it mirrors the diversity of defensive resources used between the 11th and 16th centuries. In addition to its military importance, it is important to take into account its political and cultural dimension, since it was fundamental for the victory of São Mamede, in 1128, when the mayor of this castle, Pêro Gonçalves de Marnel, took the side of D. Afonso Henriques against D. Teresa and the count of Trava. Between 1992 and 2006, archaeological studies and important restoration and conservation works were carried out, in a partnership between the Monitoring Commission of the Castelo de Santa Maria da Feira and the former IPPAR. We highlight the rehabilitation of the Chapel and the Keep, which are prepared to receive conferences, meetings, musical shows, exhibitions and other events.
