King Pedro I died in the Convent of Sao Francisco to which he bequeathed his tortured heart. Queen Isabel of Aragon, who came here with King Dinis, also ended up staying. Nowadays, a pousada named after her is to be found in King Joao former armory.
Many and various were the religious and military architectural styles, the latter justified by the strategic importance Estremoz always enjoyed in the wars against Spain: it was the military headquaters of Nuno Alvares during the wars of Independence and later became the centre of the struggle in the war to restore the Portuguese throne.
Open Air Market
By the time is was there, a great open market with chickens, turkeys, vegetables and so many other things welcomed me. These kind of markets are very usual in Alentejo region. I had the chance to taste some Alentejo cheese and other typicall recepies.
In the interior of Portugal
It all started here, I was born in the beautiful city of Estremoz.
I was 3 years old when I left and I returned in 1977. I stayed here for one year. In 1978 I went to Setubal and in the following years I regularly visited my grandparents who used to live in Estremoz.
Estremoz is a very typical and interesting place to visit or to spend a short holidays.
