The name of the city is directly related to this Castle: Alcácer derives from the word "Al-Kassr", which means Castle in Arabic. The Castle, surrounded by two walls, has a Pousada de Portugal and an archaeological museum that counts 26 centuries of history.

Near the Castle of Alcácer, today Pousada d. Afonso II, are two archaeological sites dating back to the iron age. These structures are identified as part of the "Roman Forum of Salacia Urbs Imperatoria".

The Roman Forum, discovered in 1983, has a great wall completely built in stone and a rectangular plant, made up of greyish-white marble slabs.
