Revelim de Santo António (Ravelin of Santo António (St. Anthony)

Castro Marim

At the top of the hill known as the Zambujal Rock, to the east of the town of Castro Marim, stands the Ravelin of Santo António, a 17th century military fortification. Inside the ravelin walls are the chapel Capela de Santo António (St Anthony), a traditional mill and the local Intepretation Centre, which serves as a viewpoint overlooking the river Rio Guadiana and the Castro Marim Marshlands, as well as providing visitors with all the information they need about the municipality.

The chapel, which is longitudinal in layout, features baroque style altars and a curious collection of paintings depicting scenes from St. Anthony’s life.
