    Despite the fact that this castle may have historically also interesting is we found it is not so special. What is is worth, is the view towards salt pans and Spain. The view only though the entrance fee of €1.10 p.p. (2017) quite worth it.

    A stunning 360 degree view. Do early in the morning to avoid heat :-) You can do the tour without worries.

    This large castle on its walls offers gorgeous views of the salt mines and over the Guadiana river that forms the border with Spain. If you're in the area certainly do.

  • Costing €1.10 each this castle is a cheap, but well worth it treat. Be aware that Portuguese castles don't all have barriers on their barricades. This has none! Good views of the Spanish-Portuguese border, salt pans and surrounding countryside make this an amazing visit. A small shop and museum are included too.
  • Rude lady at ticket office...very unwelcoming. Didn't bother staying.
  • I discovered this castle by accident on my way to Vila Real de Santo António. Funny, because I didn't enjoyed the city but I loved the castle. Feels very authentic and the views from there are amazing!
  • A great place to visit all year long but even better on the last weekend of August. Come and take part in the "Dias mediavais" mediaeval days festival!!!
  • A nice spot off the tourist trail with good views, local amenities including supermarket, bars and restaurants
