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!

this castle is set in a lovely part of estremoz and as others have mentioned you'll have to walk in to the pousada where you'll see a glass door immediately to your left which you go through and once you have climbed several staircases you'll...More

We enjoyed driving through the gate and then to the castle. We walked around the area looking at the interesting architecture and buildings. The views are very nice. We arrived late in the day so it did not seem like much was open.

Pousada de Portugal by Pestana. Historical building from back to the 13th century. We enjoyed the whole concept very much, including wining and dining. Very friendly staff. Will be back one of these Days.

The main attraction here seems to be the castle area at the top of the town. It is well maintained, contains a nice pousada, and a number of other structures. You need to arrive, however, before the afternoon lunch/siesta period when everything but the pousada...More

Now a hotel, the whole castle area is beautifully kept and enjoys excellent views over the plains. Well worth a visit and perhaps ( as I did) you can also consider spending the night.

For me there are two ways to explore a place. Strolling around, getting to know the corners and the streets and from above, you'll get to see some of the details you can't see from the ground. The castle isn't big so, if you have...More
