Description

Set in the impressive Defence Line of Tejo, designed by Master Gualdim Pais, the Castle of Abrantes heroically resisted two Moorish intrusion attempts. In 1179, it gets its first charter as a reward for the courage shown by the defence of the Kingdom of Portugal.

The Castle of Abrantes (Portuguese: Fortaleza de Abrantes) overlooks the city of Abrantes, in the municipality of Abrantes in the district of Santarém, Ribatejo, divided between the two civil parishes of São João and São Vicente. It was part of the Reconquista fortifications that made up the Linha do Tejo (English: Tagus Line), a line of castles and outposts during the Middle Ages, recently integrated into a tourist region called the Região de Turismo dos Templários (English: Tourist Region of the Templars).
