This is more of an old fort ruins than a castle. In the center there is this big arena which still holds bull fighting on special occasions. Inside the city wall are shops and restaurants.

We were not suppose to go but didn't regret. The views are outstanding and the place was still quite authentic.

Monsaraz is a charming step back in time. Not only the town is lovely, but the area is as well. The views are incredible. It is a side trip that should not be missed.

If you're staying in Evora for a few days this is really worth a day trip. Was my favourite part of my trip to Lisbon and surrounding district. Absolutely gorgeous village with the most amazing views.
