This is an impressive structure situated high above the picturesque town of Silves. Whilst entry to the castle is very reasonable there is not a lot to keep the visitor interested for longer than hour.

We visited the Castle on our way back from the vineyard. It is a well preserved piece of architecture and ancient history. However, it would be nice to have some explanations of what went on there. Nice exhibition about saving the lynx. Shame the lady...More

This is a nice place. We were however very surprised by the unfriendliness of the staff at the desk. Otherwise nothing special to see. The city of Silves was overall a bit disappointing but a lot of building needed to be restaured

For the 2.80 euro enterance fee this is great value. Nice place just to spend a couple of hours and take in the views. We ate in the cafe which was adequate.
