The city of Santiago do Cacém stands atop a hill crowned with a Medieval Castle, in the region of Alentejo, Portugal.

Said castle was built by the Moors, but exchanged hands several times between Moors and Christians during the times of the Reconquista until it was finally taken by the Knights Templar and the Order de Santiago de la Espada.
