Base das tropas luso-britânicas que combateram na 3ª Invasão Francesa, o Castelo do Sabugal é um pedaço da história de uma das nações mais antigas da Europa.

Sobranceiro ao Rio Coa, este território fazia parte do reino de Leão, passando a integrar o território português em 1297. A Torre do Relógio e outras obras de beneficiação datam de 1641.

Formidável conjunto de arquitetura militar gótica, tem um perímetro urbano em traçado ovalado irregular e cidadela de dupla cintura muralhada com barbacã e cubelos cilíndricos. A cintura exterior tem traçado pentagonal irregular e a interior possui cinco torres de planta quadrada."
