This castle is really interesting. It is on a small island in the Tagus River near Praia do Ribatejo. Beautiful views from the top. It was stunning on a sunny day.

We enjoyed the castle and the boat ride even though it was raining pretty hard. The views are very nice with the castle reflected in the Targus river. Luckily the boat ride is not too far as we had to stand (the seats were wet)...More

Great castle to take some imoressive photographs by the Tagus river (in the middle of it, in fact). The trio by boat is just a way to pay the ticket, but is cheap and fun. Dont miss it.

Small castle with a long history, built on a small island in the river Tagus. There's not much to see inside but the scenery is magnificent. For 2,50€ (including boat trip and entrance to the castle) it's definitely worth a visit!

Yes. I cant see why not. The interior is small and I seem to remember a dog water bowl at the gate. It would be a great place to take a dog. views are great as well!
