The Castle of Trancoso is erected atop a hill in the North-Easternmost extreme of the city of Trancoso, within the district of Guarda, Portugal.

It is a castle build in between the 10th and 13th centuries, featuring towers and the characteristic walls inclined to the tower of Moorish connotations.


From the primitive castle appears the walled fortress with five towers and an homage one, the walls featuring several gates as well. Among these, the Porta do Rei stands out the most for being flanked by two towers.
