Castelo de Castro Marim

The outer wall, in a semicircular shape, surrounded the medieval village and the so-called Castelo Velho. Today, only the remains of the castle with four turrets and a door, the ruins of the Church of São Tiago, built in the 14th century, and the Palace of the Mayors remain. The Castle is a unique viewpoint of the Guadiana River, the village, the salt pans and vast horizons of the sea.
