This is another recreation, which the structure itself is about 75% Complete, but the terrain is currently on hold whilst I figure out how to make it as realistic to the original. Also, the outer city walls are still being designed, since the original walls no longer exist, and there are only small portions of where the walls met the main castle fortifications. There are outlines of where the walls used to be, but nothing about height or tower/turret placements. The Castle was one of the first in Portugal built by the first King (Besides the Defence Tower which was built by the first King's Mother. She built the tower do defend a convent she had established nearby. Over time it was built up into a castle, then a fully walled-in city.

Hello! I am building the model of this castle by Aedes Ars, but I would like to include the living quarters which seem to be missing from the kit (it seems to model the ruins, not the original). It appears you have the living quarters in your minecraft model, cool! You mention finding the original in your comment, is it on-line somewhere? Thanks.

So the 'Original' Living Quarters have been somewhat open to architectural interpretation. But there is a site where some students and teachers have built 3D Models of the different possible stages of the castle. Make sure you reference it if you post it anywhere. Wish you Luck!! I'll DM it to you
Thank you. I have visited the site and bookmarked it, for future reference (still building the outward facing curtain wall). :)

I once visited this place years ago. I didn't think that it would be popular enough to ever be built in minecraft. Nice work!

Thanks. I was divided towards building it because resources of the Original (prime) look of the castle took weeks to find. Glad you liked it. Thanks!
