The History of the Pousada de Palmela
The Palmela Castle does not have great architectural beauties, nor does it speak of legends. There are very little facts pertinent to its history. However, it received great appraisal by Camões in "Os Lusíadas", where he speaks of a great feat by D. Afonso Henriques, who accompanied only by sixty knights managed to take control of the castle, despite their huge disadvantage.
Due to its location, the Castle enjoys one of the most beautiful panoramic views one can imagine. You could stand there for hours filling your eyes and spirit with its indescribable beauty.
