Historic town in the Baixa Alentejo: Castro Verde

Historical town surrounded by cork forests

This small town surrounded by cork forests is located in the sparsely populated Baixo Altenjo region and not far from Ourique, where the decisive battle between the Moors and the army of King Alfonso is thought to have taken place. The Royal Basilica of Castro Verde was built as a monument to this historic victory. Scenes from the battle can still be seen depicted on the painted tiles (Azulejos) lining the church's interior.
