Description

About 3 Kms from the city of Castelo Branco, in a place of pleasant natural beauty, rises -se an imposing hill of quartzitic formation, with dense endogenous vegetation.

From the top, the entire plain of the Tagus Valley is seen around -se and, on the West side, the city of Castelo Branco rises -se.

Everywhere, at the base and on the hill of S. Martinho, traces of not only the Roman presence in the region emerge from a distant past, but also marks of a Pre-historical past.

Francisco Tavares Proença Júnior was the first archaeologist to be interested-se by the origins of the city of Castelo Branco and, in the autumn of 1903, the well-known archaeologist started a series of excavations on the site, discovering three epigraphic stelae from the Bronze Age.

Monte de S. Martinho is located in the so-called “Archaeological Triangle of Castelo Branco”, which encompasses the area between the chapels of Srª de Mércoles, Santa Ana and the aforementioned hill.
