Amazing Castle of Almourol El Castillo de Almourol es un castillo medieval, situado en un pequeño islote en medio del río Tajo. El castillo era parte de la línea defensiva controlada por la Orden del Temple. El castillo de Almourol es uno de los monumentos militares medievales más emblemáticos de la Reconquista y la mejor representación de la influencia de los Caballeros Templarios en Portugal.
Castelo de Almourol, Portugal When the Christians arrived here in 1129, the castle already existed under the name of Almorolan, having been incorporated immediately afterwards into the land that was placed under the protection of the Knights Templar
Almourol castle , Portugal - An epigraphic plate, placed on the main gate, realizes that his works were completed in 1171. It is one of most representative examples of military architecture of the era, evoking both the beginnings of the kingdom of Portugal and the Order of the Knights Templar. With the extinction of the Order of the Temple the castle of Almourol starts to integrate the heritage of the Order of Christ (which was the successor in Portugal of the Templars).
Castelo de Almourol is a medieval castle, located on a small islet in the middle of the Tagus River, in the civil parish of Praia do Ribatejo, in the Portuguese Centre Region. The castle was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar, and a stronghold used during the Portuguese Reconquista.
