Great views of Tavira from the top, worth the climb up from the street though the street train also visits. The garden inside is very pretty. Not a lot to do and see, you can climb up to the top of the walls , but...More

You can easily walk up to the castle or take a tuk-tuk or even the motorised road train which has one of its stops here. No charge to enter, lovely gardens.

Hard to find as the on-street directions are almost non-existent and Google Maps was a little behind with avenue closures. Once there, you can have some good views over the town towards the sea, and "up the hill" towards the town centre. The gardens are...More

Small, but lovely castle grounds with ruins and views over Tavira. Beautiful garden with lovely plants and trees, makes for some nice photos too. Worth the short up hill walk from Tavira town, and it's free!

The ruin of the castle is not that exciting, but the old wall gives the opportunity to have a nice view over Tavira. But you should be prepared to climb up the steepish stairway. However, the hero of this spot is definitely it's beautiful garden.

More of a garden actually surrounded by a very small castle. Had to laugh at the man at the entrance inviting you in and holding his hat out for change. It made you unsure whether it was free entry or not. It is, but give...More
