The photos that show the "round" building with the bells...that is the chapel and it is amazing to see inside!

Rather than seeing one decorative style each in 8 places, you can see lots of styles in one place because of how the site developed. Even on a bad rainy day, this was a great spot!!

A very impressive place not to be missed while in Portugal. Build on the top of the hill this is a beautiful castle with a long history. Very well preserved. Walking distance from the very pretty town.

A former Roman Catholic convent originally a 12th-century Templar stronghold until it was dissolved in the 14th century. It is so beautiful with each room a new discovery. You almost feel the Templars!

The Castelo is included in the admission to the convent and there really is no differentiation between toe two. In fact, a doorway is the dividing line. But as long as it's separate here, the castelo is as interesting as the convento. It was well...More
