Alcanede Castle

Santarém

Information

Situated in a region with several vestiges of human presence since remote times, the Alcanede Castle may have been founded in the Roman occupancy period, probably about the year 150 b.C.
Located in a quite central and strategic area, this Castle observed several important and historical moments, however, with the passage of time and mainly with the big earthquake of 1531, and the consequent lost of its strategic importance, the Castle got into a degradation point.
In 1943 it is classified as Public interest monument and suffers great restoration work.
Nowadays the Alcanede Castle is the symbol of the city of Alcanede, up in the hill, with its high walls and towers that seem to defy the passage of time.
