Santiago do Cacém, a typical Alentejo city, is dominated by the Castle, with whitewashed houses and a historic area of great architectural beauty. It has the Roman ruins of Miróbriga, which are worth a visit.

Endorsed in a strategic geographical location, human populations have sought this region since remote times to establish itself. The excavations carried out in the Old Castle, where the Roman ruins of Miróbriga are located, show that the region has been inhabited since prehistory.

Although during the Celtic era there were already relations with other peninsular peoples, specifically to the south, it was with the Romans that the daily life of the village was revitalized, becoming even the main Roman city on the western coast south of the Tagus.

The opulent houses of the countes of Bracial, La Cerda, Beja, the captain-major, the counties of Avillez, Fonseca Achaiolli and others dominated the village and other Alentejo lands. The following facts reflect not only the wealth of the Lords, but also the tainting of the flourishing and picturesque life of the first half of the 20th century to the highlights of the country:- In 1895 the first automobile arrived in Portugal.
