Medieval Almourol Castle, Tagus River, Portugal - The site was occupied by the Romans during the 1st century B.C. It was later remodelled by successive invading forces, including the Alans, Visigoths and Moors, although it is unclear when the actual castle was established. The castle was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar, and a stronghold used during the Portuguese Reconquista.
