Portas do Sol

Gardens, Parks and Forests

Nowadays, the Largo das Portas do Sol is a garden contained within ancient walls. It is one of the most important viewpoints in the Ribatejo region, being located in the south-east district of the city of Santarém. From here, you can see Almeirim, Alpiarça and part of the meadowland crossed by the River Tagus.

At the time of the Christian Reconquest (12th century), this was one of the eight gates leading to the city of Santarém. The section of wall here is the best preserved part of the defensive line, although it is also possible to find some remains of this same wall at the Fonte das Figueiras and the Torre das Cabaças. The rest was destroyed in the course of the city´s expansion.
