Ruínas das Muralhas do Castelo de Seda

Alter do Chão

Information

Situated in Seda locality, right in the Alentejo region, the ruins of the walls that surrounded the Seda’s castle have probably their origin in an ancient Lusitanos tribe fortress hill, occupied by Roman troops that here built a small fortress.
The Roman presence in the region is quite obvious, with the Vila Formosa Roman Bridge and other vestiges that have been found in this region.
In 1160 the first Portuguese King, D. Afonso Henriques, conquered Seda from the Moors and donated the Fortress to the Templar’s who started building the village walls.
This Castle started loosing importance over the years and up until our days all that is left is a piece of the walls.
