The castle has little more than walls, battlement and tower, but all are spectacular. Some very serious unguarded bits so beware with children. Good views and helpful tourist office. Free entry.

There is several free parking areas inside the Castelo, we just park and went for a walk, several restaurants and handcraft shops from the town centre nothing is more than 10 minutes walk. Unfortunately we had 45o C when visit.

Free entrance. Nice building with great view over this sweet city. We hope that many more parts of the city wall will be rebuild like this.

Great place - some good sign boards. Loved the window seats on the tower second floor. Great for pictures with views out to the town and the countryside beyond.
