Let's start with getting to the Paderne Castle. In itself, it can be an adventure as the dusty and bumpy road is not the most pleasant. Secondly, the castle is closed and only opens on request. Thirdly, it is a ruin with not much to...More

Not far off the main road this is a nice place to visit and explore some of the past. Mostly derelict now but has good background information and is situated among lovely countryside and great walking.

Charming ruin with fantastic views. Castle has been thoughtfully preserved with concrete to save it from further collapse. Interesting history and puts the regions culture into perspective.

Open Wednesdays and a good historical site in the Algarve. Here you can learn the history of Portugal in the archeological digs in the Castle grounds.

Take the trail that goes along the river to the Roman bridge . Have something to eat and drink by the old mill and bridge than continue along the trail to the castle and enjoy the view.

Came here on a jeep tour. Was very interesting to see and be up close to a castle that has been there over a thousand years and withstood a major earthquake. You cannot go inside but you can walk all around it and it is...More

This castle guides us in the past, to see an erected tower and other ruins; this castle is desert since a long time and I don't know something of his secrets, but with a good imagination, it was a nice castle with a splendid view...More
