It will not take long to walk round this castle but the views are magnificent. There are a huge number of steps to the top. Free entry.

You can climb the tower to get wonderful views of the town and surrounding countryside. You can walk around the ramparts which are well conserved. Nothing remains within the castle itself but it is still worth a visit. Entry is free of charge

Probably the most must do in Beja, well worth visiting but not for the infirm or feint hearted. Great views , steep steps and no guard rails around the battlements. Very picturesque.

It is free, it is clean (like the rest of the city). It is one of the must things you should do if you come to Beja. It is charming as most of the Portuguese castles.

The castle is well maintained and gives excellent views of the town and surrounding countryside if you are able to climb the 200 steps of the tower.
