Right in the centre of the town and not to be missed. It was only 1.62 euros each to get in. Lovely views and great value for money

Worth visiting Loule for the Markets and this castle. As in others in Portugal, the castles don't get covered in protective railings to spoil the view and authentic look but so are also hazards for small children so keep them close and hold on to...More

The castle is probably one of the highlights of Loulé. However it does not have much on offer. It makes for a nice picture from the street, and the view on top of its walls is not bad either. The entrance was quite hard to...More

Small Castle. Children and retired adults free. The children enjoyed the old kitchen and the battlements. Adults enjoyed the view. There is an English written guide. No audio guide. A brief visit as we are not interested in old pots!

Having failed to read the TripAdvisor review of the castle before visiting Loulé, I also failed to realise that it was possible to enter the castle grounds. This is not apparent when looking at the castle from the street and, although I noticed the Shrek...More

Walls can be seen from the outside free of charge, to go up you have to pay. There is also the Museum of Loulé on the ground floor.

This is one of Loulé’s main attractions and well worth a visit. There’s a nice front garden with a Shrek (no, I don’t know why either). Downstairs is a museum with historical artefacts on display. Upstairs leads to views of the town and locality. All...More
