    Inside the fortifications of the Fortaleza de Abrantes you will find the Church Santa Maria do Castelo. Inside the church you will find a museum exhibition that shows a collection of Roman sculptures, funeral artefacts and azulejos. During my visit the church was undergoing a restoration, so the exhibition was relocated within the fortifications. Now everything should be on its place again.

    To have an even better view on the region, you should climb the tower in the fortress. It is easy to be missed out, but the view is great!

    Ideal located on a hilltop overlooking the region you will find the huge fortress of Abrantes. This strategic position is the reason that at this place already at roman times a fortification was set up. Since then many successful and unsuccessful attemps were carried through to conquer this place. Have a look at the wikipedia link below to get an idea about this very busy history.
