I’ve never seen a tower built all out of marble! It is now a Pousada but you can enter the hotel and climb the tower for free. Great views

At the top of the town is this lovely medieval castle which now houses a Pousada. There are a few buildings in the large open area which are worth looking at and the views all around are far reaching.

Worth the climb up the tower to see the rooms and views from the top, and various rooms on the way up. Access via the Pousada. It is about 70 steps to the top, but worth it!
