Description

Responsible for the settlement between Mondego and Tejo, as well as the defence of the Capital Coimbra, Almourol Castle was conquered by D. Afonso Henriques and donated to the Temple Order, so that Gualdim Parents could be in charge of the defence of the region.

The Castle of Almourol is a medieval castle atop the islet of Almourol in the middle of the Tagus River, located in the civil parish of Praia do Ribatejo, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) from the municipal seat of Vila Nova da Barquinha, in Portugal's Center Region. The castle was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar, and a stronghold used during the Portuguese Reconquista.
