  • 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
