Very little of the old town castle (Al-buhera) remains; this section of wall is a reminder.

Very small piece of the old castle. Just a small piece of wall about 20 feet wide containing some original stonework.A large part is still under the current buildings.

You can see that´s an old wall. You will not get excited. It is poorly restored and gives you a feeling that it is an artificial wall. Not worth visiting!

If you miss this no big deal. As far as history goes this is not very exciting, especially if you have been around and travelled.

Found the castle wall on one of my walks around Albufeira but not really much to look at. There is simply a piece of the old castle wall and a plaque in Portugese.
