The Pousada Alcácer do Sal (official name
Hotel D. Afonso II) is a luxury hotel situated in a centuries-old castle that sits on a hill overlooking the river Sado. 

Over the previous 5000 years, the site has been occupied by Phoenicians, Arabs, and Romans.

Before the Roman occupation it was called Eviom. The Romans called it Salatia Urbs Imperatoria. Alcácer also was a capital city for the Visigoths. 

The first king of Portugal tried to conquer it in 1158, but failed. It later came under  Portuguese comntrol in 1217.  In the 1500s the castle had no military purpose any longer, and so became a Carmelita de Aracelli convent during the 16th century.
