Castle of Abrantes


castle of abrantes

The Castle of Abrantes was part of the Reconquista fortifications that made up the Tagus Line, a line of castles and outposts during the Middle Ages.
The Castle has an imposing position on the right margin of the Tagus River, surmounting a hilltop overlooking the town and local landscape. It is a characteristic hilltop fortification, located on a 197-metre high plateau dominating the town, designed to take advantage of the steep incline of the northeast escarpment.
It was recently integrated into a tourist region called the Tourist Region of the Templars.
