Geocache Description:


R.D.M. - Rota dos Miradouros

Castelo e Miradouro

Foi construído, por ordem de D. Diniz, entre os séculos XIII e XIV, provavelmente sobre um antigo castro romanizado. Era composto de cidadela e muralha que envolvia a povoação. Os seus vestígios estão implantados no cimo do monte que domina a vasta planície de Ourique, do castelo apenas restam alguns troços da muralha, sobre os quais se construiu um miradouro e um jardim com um reservatório de água ao centro. O jardim possui abundante e diversificada vegetação; no seu interior destaca-se a estátua de Dom Afonso Henriques e o Brasão da Vila. Deste miradouro temos um vasto panorama sobre a imensa planície alentejana.

D.Afonso

 Castle  and Belvedere

The Castle was built by order of D. Diniz, between the XIII and XIV centuries, probably on a former roman Castro, that consisted of walls and citadel that involved the village. Their traces are implanted at the top of the hill that dominates the vast plains of Ourique. Of the castle, only some sections of the walls are left, on which the viewpoint was built, surround by a garden with a water reservoir in the centre. The garden has abundant and varied vegetation; within it highlights is the statue of D. Afonso Henriques and the Coat of Vila. From this viewpoint you can appreciated the panoramic scenes of the vast plains of the Alentejo.
