Pousada de Palmela, Castelo de Palmela occupies a position that has long been a strategic point for securing control of the lands south of the Tagus. From Palmela, Afonso HenrĂ­ques, the first king of Portugal, drove out the Moors and established his new nation's domination of the district. In its day, the 12th-century fortress was a splendid example of medieval military architecture.
