The Castle is one of the most notable Portuguese monuments as to how mirrors the diversity of defensive resources used between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries. Apart from its military importance, consideration should be given its political and cultural dimension, since it was critical to the victory of São Mamede, in 1128, when the mayor of this castle, Pero Gonçalves de Marnel, sided with D. D. Afonso Henriques against Teresa and Earl Lock.
