Castle

Interesting
It is best to leave your car in the cathedral square to go in through the surrounding wall of the castle. The path round the battlements has many viewpoints over the town and the surroundings. You can see, to the north-west, the irrigated valley of the Arade, and, behind, the Serra de Monchique. To the south, the view extends over the peach and almond-tree orchards and in the distance to the coast.
