Aljezur

Castelo de Aljezur is a medieval castle located in the town of Aljezur, in the Algarve region of Portugal. 

The castle is situated on a hill overlooking the town and the surrounding countryside, and it played an important role in the history of the region.

The castle was built by the Moors in the 10th century, and it was later conquered by the Portuguese in the 13th century during the Reconquista. The castle was expanded and renovated over the centuries, and it served as a strategic military stronghold and a residence for various Portuguese monarchs.
