If you climb up through the PortaSanta Ana you pass the shell house and then climbing up further you see the stones of the old castle wall. This is nothing to go looking specifically for but it is enjoyable walking through the narrow streets as...More

I'm a bit of a culture vulture & am happy to track down a church etc but this really is a waste of time.

Very small piece of the old castle. Just a small piece of wall about 20 feet wide containing some original stonework.A large part is still under the current buildings.

You can see that´s an old wall. You will not get excited. It is poorly restored and gives you a feeling that it is an artificial wall. Not worth visiting!

Found the castle wall on one of my walks around Albufeira but not really much to look at. There is simply a piece of the old castle wall and a plaque in Portugese.
