This was a “filler” event with a block we needed to fill. I wish we had more time! It was quite fun exploring the castle. Be sure to watch the video of the history first...then what you see makes sense and is more meaningful. Dress...More

Worth a visit if you are in santa maria da feira. It's a well kept castle. You can walk around the walls, or go inside the towers.

Although with no much to see it is very interesting and beautiful. Small and without many directions, but with a very nice video about its history.

It is a great and beatiful monument. It is preserved and used in many events, like sunsets and exhibitions.

A definitely unusual castle in Portugal with a large and complex defensive system. The entry ticket includes a film about the castle's history.

Great castle with big free car park right near it. Needed gps to find it though, signs seem to dry up on the way. Only 3 euro so quite the bargain for such a fun castle to visit.

This is a very unusual castle for Portugal, as the insides are mostly fully in tact and are great for exploring! Other more famous castles (Sintra and Guimarães) only have their outer walls and are built in a very different style so it was awesome...More
