My husband and I decided to stop in Castro Marim for a quick visit and I’m glad we did. The town of Castro Marim is quaint, picturesque, walkable and has several cafes to grab an espresso. The castle is a must see! It dates back...More

If this castle could speak it would have a tale to tell. It is steeped in history and conflict. Very cheap entry at just over a Euro with some nice souvenirs. The museum and the area that brings to life some fairly unpleasant punishments of...More

Just a wall with some building inside. It took us 15 mins to go around. Nice views from the top tower. Could be interesing if they'd had some programs

It is a nice walk, just around Castro Marim Sol. The village is for tourists in Campers...you see them on a special parking space..loading their Campers with beer, white wine..and food..especially in wintertime. Castro Marim is a friendly village.

We enjoyed our visit to this castle, for 1.20 euros you don't expect much but it has great views, still enough of the castle remains for you to get the idea of what it would have been like way back, signs in English, the torture...More

Walk up the cobbled street to see this castle. Views all around over to Spain. Gory exhibition on showing torture instruments, still having nightmares about them. Very basic castle but definitely worth a visit. Lovely town. 1.20 euros.

My wife went into the castle but it was not accessible to me 9n my small wheeled electric mobility scooter. A large wheeled wheelchair might rare better. Worth a try though. The town itself is very nice though.

We spent roughly an hour looking around the seemingly abandoned castle. The entry fee is reasonable at only €1.50, but with very little to do other than taking in the views from the castle keep, it is fair. Of all the castles I have visited...More

This castle, which played such an important role in the defense of Portugal from a possible invasion from Spain, has been sadly left in a state of abandonment. There is a good view of the white houses of the town below but inside the walls...More
