  Torre de Menagem (Dungeon), Melgaço
by bambino36

Founded in the 13th century, Melgaço castle was inserted in the strategic line of defense of Minho.
It's made in granite and it raises up in a small hill with an excellent view over the surrounding mountains and the streets of the borough.
In the center lies the dungeon. The visit to the dungeon costs 1? and inside can be seen an exposition about the village with objects dating back from pre-historic times. From the top of the dungeon the view is magnificent
