The Castle of Abrantes, also called the “Fortress of Abrantes”, constructed is in a dominant position on a hill on the right bank of the Tagus River, formerly the Tagus Line, a group of forts that is currently part of the c site has been occupied since prehistoric times by a fort, conquered, under the Roman invasion of the Iberian Peninsula, in 130 BC, by the consul Decimus Junius Brutus and later occupied by Visigoths and Muslims.
The entrance is for free, there are toilets and a small church who is under reconstruction and a large garden on the inside but further there is no much to see beside the nice views on the surrounding area. Good for a short visit.

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

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.

Not the most beautifull castle, but it is a place to visit if you are passing by. The view is great.

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.
