Visit the Castle Vila Viçosa - Our Lady of Conception

The Castle of Vila Viçosa, who was once a Moorish stronghold, located in the Parish of Our Lady. In a place where there was a Moorish stronghold, D. Dinis built a mighty castle and a city wall around the whole village, then expanded by D. Fernando with two doors. In the seventeenth century, the castle was again strengthened with walls 4-5 meters, which helped stem the Spanish army.
