Long Description:
Atop the hill (at 240 meters above the sea level), behind the town, on the site of a Moorish fortress captured in 1165, stands the restored medieval castle built in the 13th century by Dom Sancho II. Its five towers and walls protect something even older, the 12th century church of Santa Maria which offers an example of popular rural religious architecture.
