We walked here from the village below, walking up the roadway. Very steep but worth the walk. Pretty village with an artisan shop half way down the street. Lovely

A beautiful castle in the top of a hill with amazing views. The main building is unique. Different from all the others in Portugal. Worth to visit if you are somewhere between Estremoz and Evora.
