    Perhaps one of the best preservation castles I've visited ... all very organized and clean ... too bad they don't have more info on the history of the Castle.

    It's not about exactly a castle, but before walls. Between the walls there is only one building-the Church-which unfortunately was closed. The "Castle" is very well treated and, very important, has information about your story, something which unfortunately is not as common as it should be in historical monuments. But what really worth is the garden. Garden walls amaze yourself of Montemor-o-Velho. Is beautiful! And very well taken care of.

    The castle in Montemor-o-velho is worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. For a trip from further away I would not recommend that. You can walk on walls, explore the system themselves, and has great views of the area. Everything is well maintained and is kept constantly in shot.

  • Stunning and unexpected. Amazing mix of history from knights templar to the decision to execute Innes de Castro to ancient family politics and Moorish conquests. Walk the ramparts, tread on 14th century graves, marvel at the military architectural innovations from waaaaay back in the day.
  • Cool place, and free! A visit here shouldn't take more than 30-45 minutes.
  • Awesome. The best place for a little picnic with girlfriend
  • A great place to visit and see an historical Castle with a panoramic view of the countryside.
  • Very cool and well preserved small castle! Beautiful views!
