  • Fantastic medieval style annual festival with themed shows & street entertainment telling particular story from past. Market stalls and food. Focus is on impressive historic castle and town of Silves, with scheduled daily programme from 6pm to 1am during festival. Good value for money. Well worth a visit, but its a steep walk, narrow closed off cobbled streets, large crowds. Not recommended for pushing wheelchairs or even mobility scooters - maybe visit Silves when festival is not on, and drive / taxi up to castle when streets are open & accessible to vehicles?
  • This is our third time to Silves Medieval festival. It is such a cool vibe, all the lights, the music, the people in their fancy outfits, the stalls and the food, gives a really good atmosphere. My request for the next year, is that; I wish to see some vegetarian and vegan food available 🌱💕
  • Amazing festival at Silves. Well worth a visit If your in the Algarve. It takes over the whole if the old town.
  • What an amazing experience! we found out about this festival by coincidence and decided to spend an evening there, it turned out to be an amazing experience. It is basically a medieval festival related to the Muslim caliphate and the vikings. There is a show called "war games" and another called "the voyage". Both were just great. Would definitely recommend that you buy the tickets for all the shows including access to the festival area., If we knew about the festival and that we could rent some costumes before hand, we would defo have done that. it takes place on a mediavel city called Silves. Thank you so much for such a great experience Silves!
  • Excellent evening out and well worth a visit!
