Lonely Planet review

What’s left of the castle is surrounded by a small and very appealing garden. The defence might date back to Neolithic times; it was rebuilt by Phoenicians in the 8th century and later taken over by the Moors. What stands today dates mostly from 17th-century reconstruction. The restored octagonal tower offers fine views over Tavira. Note: don’t set the kids free here – ramparts and steps are without railing.
