Castelo de Almourol reviews
Cute little castle near the river with some absolutely stunning views. Please ignore TripAdvisor’s tours as you can get the ferry over (and back) for 4€ pp more »
The free car park is immediately adjacent to the water to see this lovely castle perched on a small island in the river. Although original structures on this site can be dated back two thousand... more »
Interesting and good maintained castle on a small island. Accessible by boat. Boat ticket includes castle entry fee. It has a lot of historical information written on different places around the castle. From the top it has great view of the river surrounding it.
Cool castle with great views. You need to get a boat to go inside. The price is 4 euros per person and they only take cash! The castle is not very big. You should be careful since the infrastructure is not very safe. There is also a big tower inside the castle and you can go all the way up for an amazing view.
