Inside the castle is a great art gallery exhibiting a changing series of contemporary artworks in various media. The contrast between ancient and modern architecture is amazing, and viewing the artwork in this context is an interesting experience.

If you happen to be in this region of the world, if you enjoy great food and wine you should be, then the visit to the Castelo de Alegrete is a must.

This is a carefully renewed castle. Although there is not that much remaining, the work that was done was good, and you do have spectacular views. Very interesting metal platforms provide good photo opportunities. And the near by "historical centre" is also very nice, with the main church very white and with strong blues tones. Deserves a visit
