“Not a must see....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

I will agree that it was interesting to see the old castle, but only the walls remain. This wouldn't be in of the top things to do in this area.

“Coração de Lagos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

I do agree with ChristoPM of Londen, that a view of these beautiful old walls reminds one that this is in fact a very old town with a great history and the open space surrounding it, allthough in desparate need of decent maintenance and corrective action, creates a good backdrop for the entrance to our especially lovely marina.
