  • Not to be missed on a visit to the city. In addition to this beautiful castle there is also to visit the Fort of St. Francis and the Fort of São Neutel also beautiful.

  • We visit every year, with our children, this beautiful Tower for the pleasure of visiting the building and the view at the top. There is not much to see in the show (it's officially a Museum of the army but very dated) but the entry costs only €1 for adults. Be careful, do not get dizzy for climbing the stairs and hand hold children. Kids who love the stories of Knights and princesses feast! And after the visit, there is not away very good pastry Panaderia Maria, the oldest of Chaves and for us the best!

  • Chaves in general is a beautiful place. It's a mixture of modern and old world and has a little bit of everything for everyone. The castle isn't awe inspiring but the gardens are beautiful and the views magnificent. The castle itself houses military memorabilia from different eras. It only costs €1 to have a look around.
  • The remains of an old castle but the main tour is in good condition with a nice garden.
  • I was not inside. A great looking piece of Portuguese military architecture from the 15th century. All around you have a garden and the old city. It is really beautiful and peaceful.
  • Difficult to find, but quaint. No India. Just a view from the adjacent park.
  • Fantastic views of the whole city!
