The castle has been beautifully restored and is well worth a visit. There is a good cafetaria service with a magnificent view over the Sado river estuary. The place is easy to reach and parking normally is not a problem.

It's worth going up there (by car) to enjoy the splendid views of the Setubal bay. Note that this is a free entrance. The bar has very reasonable prices so you can treat yourself with a drink with a superb view !

Walking the walls of this giant landmark fortification is a sobering experience - there weren't many creature comforts on offer to anyone posted here to keep an eye on the coast in years gone by. Luckily these days there's a nice little terrace cafe with...More
