We saw the sign "Fortaleza de Abrantes" on the side of the road, and the name rang a bell, so we stopped. Actually, Junot, General of Napoléon, was named Duc d'Abrantes after he succesfully invaded Portugal, took over Lisbon, confiscated British properties and chased the King into exile in Brazil, all in 1808. Nothing therefore to do with the Fortress... Congratulations for keeping the place up and tidy and for running a nice little museum, all free, not mentioning the huge parking right at the Fortress.

Bit of a climb, but there always are for castles. Lovely 360 degree views, taking in the town and river, and free entry.

It's a big castle with a museum inside it. You can walk around the walls and admire the city below it or the other towns in the distance. There is a of grass and it's well kept. It's a good castle, if you're into that kind of things.

Hello travellers , Castelo de Abrantes is 130 km from Lisbon so it is easy to get there, you have two entrances the main and tourist entrance is at the front gate you can go in and explore the castle the nearby houses, you have some artifacts that remain alive besides the time passage, you have a little museum that is free, with some sculptures, and tomb of some important people to the city. you even have a fortress inside castle too, donto forget before you go visit the garden of the castle its right next to castle but you have to leave castle, theres no connection. You have a beatifull view of the country and Church of Saint Vicent. Hope you like it, enjoy
