SESIMBRA
CASTLE
On top of a hill from which one can look over the sea and a large part of the village of Sesimbra, this castle was conquered by king Afonso Henriques, just after the conquest of Palmela. It would be re-taken by the Moors, but with king Sancho I it would become a permanent part of the Portuguese kingdom heritage.
SANTIAGO FORTRESS
A 15th century fortress and prison, it was an integrant part of the coastal defence system. Up until the 18th century it served as the coastal military command, as well as the royal family’s summer residence.
