During your visit, it is worth going up the hill of the old castle (which was transformed in 1967 into a Pousada) and take in the views of the Alentejo plains. These were the ruins of the ancient palace where Queen Isabel de Aragon used to stay when coming to Estremoz. This town records the story of her life and in particular the “Miracle of the Roses”. The fable tells that when carrying money for the poor hidden in her apron the King stopped her and upon his request, she opened the apron to reveal only some roses.
