  • a beautiful castle on the top of Mertola. free access to the most of parts. tower's access 2 euro. nice views.
  • Cannot miss. We we're lucky to see a Medieval market when we went. It was mainly people dressed as Arabs and handmade stuff to buy. The views are spectacular
  • There is much to be said for and against the renovations. Anyway you look at it it's a fantastic site with a great history that's worth taking note of.
  • Mértola us a great place to visit... Lots of green, river nearby, cozy little town, happy people.. A lot of small street's, not so easy to walk because of all the hill's but still worth the trip. Lots of good restaurants, excellent food's, and great wines to try out around here..tapas is a must-have, and the typical Portuguese cafe's are pleasant and cheerful... Beautiful architecting in the main square area. Children friendly, not so friendly for people with wheelchair...Lots of old roads and small street's with old floors. Great views for photography enthusiasts!! Try out the restaurant: Terra Utópica! It's wonderful and they have a genius in that kitchen!! 👌
  • Beautiful little Town, Stunning Views, Good Wine Shop, Stopped for Lunch while on A Birdwatching Trip, apparently gets very Warm, in The Summer, Would definitely recommend this Lovely Eatery this Charming Town
