We spend 8-9 days in Portugal and started with a night in Porto. The very next day we rented a car a drove all the way south. If you are new to Portugal it will surprise you to find out signs for castles and monasteries...More

Our hotel owner suggested we spend the late afternoon there after arriving from Tomar. What a view all the way to Fatima, and what a well preserved gem of a XIIth century castle! You cannot go in but walking around is atmospheric and free. The...More

We had a local guide to show us the old village of Ourem, indeed an interesting mount crowned by a Fortress- Castle, from the Middle Ages, since we were touring the area, it was worth it, and it was a massive construction in those days....More

We enjoyed our short visit to Ourem castle. It was very scenic and the views were terrific. Not a lot to do here, but glad we visited it.

The castle is a huge construction, with many different areas to visit which offer you great views from the city and areas around it. The medieval city under it is very well restored and amazing.

Visit the cemetery next door... it’s view to die for! Seriously if you have to be buried anywhere this is idyllic - at least people will get pleasure when they visit you

This is a ruin. It is large and easy to walk around. Need imagination to recreate the way it used to be. Very windy when we visited and likely to be windy most days.

We were staying at The Pousada below the castle so it was only a 10 minute walk. Worth the effort for the views alone but the ruined castle was an interesting diversion

Very close to Fátima sanctuary, close to Tomar, Ourem and Leiria. It's a nice place to visit or stay. For the locals it's the place to relax with friends having a ginger licor. Check out the landscape and the atmosphere...

The place was beautiful once we got up there, but the drive was scary. Our tour driver did a great job getting up there, but not something I would do again. The view from up there was amazing. If you are not so worried about...More

Essentially the castle is uninhabitable and the hardest part would be the drive up to the top of the mountain subject to weather conditions. The working village would be open all year but expect a lot of visitors during... More
