Santarem (Portuguese: Santarém), known as the Portuguese Gothic capital, is located on the right bank of the Tagus River in the Alentejo region, the central part of the country, just 69 km (43 mi) northeast of Lisbon, and lies on the Caminho Português, a Catholic pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
The city was founded by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. Between the 8th and 12th centuries, the Moors were settled here. In the years 1325–1357, it was a royal residence and the capital of the Kingdom of Portugal.
