castle of belver

Belver Castle was the first and most important castle to be constructed by the Hospitalers in Portugal during the Middle Ages. It was built in order to defend the access-way along the Tagus River.
King Sancho conceded the site to Afonso Paes, prior of the Order of the Hospitallers. The condition was that the Order would build a castle to stabilize the Christian-Muslim frontier along the Tagus River.
