This is from Wikipedia : The Evoramonte Castle (formerly also spelled "Évora Monte" or "Évoramonte") is a Portuguese castle in Evoramonte, Estremoz, Évora district. It has been listed as a National monument since 1910.

The castle was initiated in 1160 and enlarged in later centuries. It was the site of the signing of the "Concession of Évora Monte" (or the "Convention of Évora Monte") on May 26, 1834 which ended the civil war between Dom Pedro IV and Dom Miguel, after which Dom Miguel went into exile.[
