The castle at Monsaraz is a wonderful spectacle; not only as you approach the fortified town but also once you enter its walls. After capture by Geraldo Se Pavor the town and castle were given over to the Knights Templar and both were the stage for many historic battles.

Today they are a well preserved reminder of an intriguing slice of Portuguese history.
