The Castle of Evoramonte, alternately spelled Évora Monte or Évoramonte, is a Portuguese castle in the civil parish of Evoramonte, municipality of Estremoz in the former district of Évora. Initiated in 1160, in the Gothic period, it was enlarged in later centuries in the Manueline style. It was at this site that the Concession of Evoramonte on was signed on 26 May 1834, that ended Liberal Wars between the Liberal forces of Queen Maria II of Portugal and Absolutist armies of Miguel of Portugal. Since 1910, it has been listed as a Portuguese National monument.HistorySometime during the 12th century, the region of Évora Monte was conquered from the Moors by the forces of Geraldo Sem Pavor. By 1248, a foral (charter) was issued to the region to provide incentives for settlement, which was reaffirmed in 1271.Around 1306, King Denis ordered the fortification of the town: it was at this time that construction of the castle began, that included the main structure, walls and gates.After the rise of John I of Portugal to the Portuguese throne, the castle and associated lands were given to the constable Nuno Álvares Pereira, who later passed them on to his grandson.Make the most of your holiday in Evoramonte by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Portugal online attractions planner.
