Paço da Ega stands on a hilltop,
surrounded by superb views, with a 20 000 m2 estate, comprising a forest of
secular oaks, pines and olive trees. It is a medieval building, erected on the
ruins of the ancient Ega
Castle, dating back from
the first half of the 12th century. This castle was built by the Templars on an
earlier Moorish fortress, conquered by D. Afonso Henriques. Belonging to the
Order of Christ, in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in 1508, and it still
proudly exhibits several Manueline doors and windows, as well as some Roman
traces, probably from an ancient fortress at the same site.
Paço da Ega was recently restored and converted into a Manor House, opening its doors to all those eager to discover the history of Portugal and to enjoy a comfortable stay.
