  • It is a space that is left of the old castle which now contains a military museum. Admission is only €1 and worth the visit

  • Castle very well maintained, inserted in the historic area, with a well-tended garden with views of the city and the mountains. Good access. Visit advisable.

  • Nice place to visit. There's a beautiful garden in front of the castle with a nice view. You can enter the castle to see the museum and go to the top. Worth the visit to get to know a bit of the story and also for the view on top, all around the city. The enter costs only 1 euro and it closes at 18:30.
  • I castle is a pretty basic fortification but has a great view of the area. It is at the top of the hill and faces south overlooking the Roman bridge and the hilly countryside. The area around the castle is cool too. It is walking distance from most of the other sites, including the bridge, the Roman baths, and the fort of San Francisco.
  • It’s a fortified tower with a military museum inside. A visit to the top is recommended for the views. (Check with reception if it’s open)
  • A city worth visiting. Include the castel in your plan
  • 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.
