    Despite being free is very weak. The castle looks like it was renovated recently but the State of degradation and abandonment is well visible. The lady who was the entry should also slightly to the sympathy and the rooms seemed left abandoned

    It's worth it because it's close, and it's free. Good views of the city. Bad service. We feel a bit abandoned

    Castle, built in the 13th century, was rebuilt and became an important strategic point in the 18th century with regard to Guerra de Restauração (Portugal with Spain's war for independence from the Spanish Crown). Currently, the Castle remained only 2 towers and part of the fortress wall, besides locking strongly disfigures modern wood extension. Without it, he would have looked much better. Admission is free, the castle is open from morning to evening on weekdays.

    Not comparable with any of the other Alto Alentejo region castles. Not well preserved and unfortunately altered with a wooden structure attached. Even the exhibits inside are not interesting at all. Good thing is it's free

    Beautiful building, with an interesting recovery. However does not provide for maintenance of their elevations, sobreelevadas structures in wood.

    Admission is free and still not worth the price.

    I'm sorry to have visited, and yet does not have any information, no literature on entry to learn more your story. I am also sorry for plaster q inside the Castle, as well as get good visibility, there's a lot of lack of maintenance.
