    Medieval tower

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most visible of the two medieval remains in the village is a Templar tower, built in the 12th century, in location of a former Roman tower from the first century BC.
    It seems to be a peculiar building because its 5 sides were not common in those constructions.

    Nossa Senhora do Pranto

    If you decide to learn portuguese (good idea!) you may practice reading in CEAO the legend that assigns to queen Isabel the construction of the chapel by the medieval tower of Dornes, and tries to explain its name - Our Lady of Crying. Too long to translate to this pages, it's a curious story, demonstrating well portuguese traditions and beliefs.
    History confirms that the church was built in the 13th century, and rebuilt in 1453.
