During the reign of Afonso III, had restoration work, which also would happen in the reign of King Dinis. Was the field of constable, D. Nuno Alvares Pereira, and here was signed the Convention of Évora Monte in 1834, which ended the Liberal Wars.

The earthquake in 1531, leads to the need of reconstruction, the walls were strengthened and its structure has followed the line of entrenched Renaissance palaces, whose project is awarded to architects, Diogo e Francisco Arruda.

In good condition, the castle is classified as a National Monument and benefited from articles of consolidation and restoration, with many campaigns from 1930 until 1987.
