This castle gives beautiful views of Silves and is full of history. The castle itself doesn’t have lots to do, so plan to go to a cafe nearby too, and definitely bring a bottle of water for the walk. This isn’t an attraction for those...More

What a beautiful castle and a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We enjoyed walking the walls of the castle and were delighted to see lots of storks in their nests dotted around the town. The little cafe in the grounds of the castle was...More

If you are travelling in summer - take a bottle of water each. The castle walls are lovely and high - offering a 360 view of the town of Silves. There is an attempt to help you visualise the castle through the ages, and the...More

Had a lovely couple of hours in the castle. Good views across the countryside and all for a nominal entrance fee.

If you travel to Silves you cant miss the castle. Literally. It is the large red structure in the middle of the city. Well worth the 2.80 euros to have a leisurely stroll and take in the history.

Worth the climb to the top of the town to see the view from the top. There is a great cafe where you can enjoy delicious orange juice and tasty sandwiches.

Always worth visiting for the great panoramic views and it is cheap to get in.New addition since my last visit was a very good bar which also hosted events in the summer evenings.

Went for a day out to Silvas and found this great castle. Fantastic views around a beautiful town and some interesting rooms with pictures and artefacts. Nice cafe in the Center for lunch and snacks

A wonderful way to experience the history so abundant in this area. The castle has been remarkably renovated, but you can see the remains of the old structure inside. A lovely café inside to take a break. Great for kids to experience the past!

There is a car park by the river and then we walked up to the town square and castle. Well worth the trip.
