Built in the 13th century by King Afonso III, Castro Marim Castle has an interesting stretch of wall that is semi-circular in shape, on the inside of which stand the Old Castle, the Church of Nossa Senhora dos Mártires (Our Lady of Martyrs) and a number of ruins, including the old governors’ palace.
This major monument provides visitors with a breathtaking panoramic view over the town and the River Guadiana.
There is also a museum inside the castle, where visitors will have the opportunity to discover a vast collection of archaeological finds dating from the Bronze Age to the Middle Ages, and which bear witness to the region’s history.
