“Strange Fortress but Lovely Little Walled Village”
Review of EvoraMonte Castle

EvoraMonte Castle
Ranked #1 of 11 things to do in Evoramonte
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The Castle looks like a more modern cement building, not something from the 16th century. The village is more interesting in my opinion. We enjoyed walking the walls, and visiting the church and cemetery. We walked done the main street and shopped in an Artisan shop where we purchased some pottery. The views are very nice and all of this is worth a visit.

Since i was little i love this Castle, dunno why 'cause im not even a big fan of this style, but it filled my head with witches stories.. Its still a beautiful castle to visit, inside and out, and the views are absolutely stunning. 2€ entrance, well worth.

The castle itself is not the real highlight here, but the village set high on the hill within crumbling walls is a real gem of a place, untouched by time. The walk around the walls is exhilarating (if lacking in safety measures!).

The best views though are from the top of the castle, and at only €2 entry (€3 for our whole family!), it is well worth it. The rooms inside and information boards are also interesting.

Do not miss out on this place if you are driving past or in the area - an absolute highlight of our stay in the Alentejo. Just driving up and into the village is an adventure enough!

The strength of this building lies in its simplicity, from the outside is look impressive yet the inside is kept simple and functional, and that was decided upon centuries ago! Village within fortified walls not so impressive as for instance Monseraz, nevertheless merits a walk through after visiting the castle
