A really beautiful castle with great militar defenses. An example of portuguese architecture though the times. You can make a guided visit or came in a special occasion such as medieval fair or the christmas thematic park.

The castle is very nice, not big, but well maintained. It does not have a museum, but you can walk the walls very well and have a very nice view of the surrounding.
