Perched at a height of 600m, on the spine of a mound near the Serra da Estrela, Belmonte is distinguished from afar by the square keep of its old fortified castle. It is the birthplace of the famous navigator Pedro Alvares Cabral who discovered Brazil in 1500. His statue stands in the street that bears his name. The pantheon of the Cabral family is located in a chapel, on the castle hill.
