  • The Calvary Gate is part of the abaluartada fortification built in the seventeenth century for the Restoration Wars, is a wall of three gates of which only the most monumental one is preserved, that of Calvary, oriented towards Portugal, is named after a ancient Calvary located in the same point where at the beginning of the eighteenth century in 1703 this building was built and that had to be suppressed, so they left as a memory of it a marmoreo relief with a Calvary of a single cross that of Christ with the ornament of INRI and bones at his feet and a upper band in which the phrase "in hoc sign vinces" is read with this sign you will overcome. Next to the Calvary Gate is the Convent of San Juan de Díos and the Alqueva Natural Theme Park
