Don’t miss Arraiolos Castle, probably the biggest symbol of Arraiolos, on top of the hill. Recommended!

This Castelo is easy to visit. With the car you can drive to the top of the hill where the castle is. Nice to walk around and enjoy the views.

Soberb 360º views over the town. Easy to park. Salvador Church open only a few days in the year. Worth a visit.

If you go up there you will see a great view and you will know right away why there's a castle in Arraiolos. You can see miles of distance from there! The only thing that we can point is that the portuguese government should protect...More

Better castles to visit than this one...only some small rocks of the castle with terrain not well maintained

Only walls and a church is what remains. Interesting, with nice views. Church was closed, so it was disappointing.

This castle is old, and as such, there's not much there other than ruins. That said, head up there to see some incredible views of the surrounding landscape.

In fact all there is here are walls and a church on the hill which was closed when we visited it. The surrounding area is badly looked after, giving the appearance of being abandoned.
