  • We drove up from the Algarve to visit Beja and had a lovely day out. However, be aware the castle tower is ," temporarily closed" for the foreseeable future. It's worth checking before you set out  more »
  • This castle was builded in the 13th century. If the weather is clear you can see very far from the tower. The area around the castle is also very nice, narrow streets with cute, white houses.  more »
  • We have stoped to see Beja when going from Faro to Évora and did not regret... the castle is really worth the stop  more »

  • Nice views of the city. It's a good place to have a quick break and relive some memories of a different era. The castle is in good conditions.
  • Quite an impressive castle that is completely open to explore and climb the walls. I believe the main tower closes at certain times but we managed to arrive and quickly climb to the top for breathtaking views of the town and surrounding area. Few info cards around the place detailing the history of the castle both in Portuguese and in English, not too much information but a good glimpse into it's history. Well worth a visit if you are driving through the area.
  • Nice castle you can visit for free, including walking on the ramparts and climbing the 3/4 stories of the tower for a great lookout point.
  • Beautiful to go see, if you're not afraid of heights you can see the whole city from up at the top. Very pretty, not expensive at all and the cafe is really good too
  • Great castle, free to visit and it is in good condition. You can walk all the way to the top.
