With a roman, Arabic and medieval flavour, Silves was a great discovery for us.
That day we pick up Geoff and Mary and drove along the countryside (roof off) till Silves. We only knew that the castle was one of the best preserved of the area 8 and you know Stacy´s passion for castles lol is not far away mine ;-) !) But we founded a city with more to offer, even if indications were not great.
Visit the castle, cathedral and church walk along the little streets… and visit of course the Portugal cross …
The views from the castle were incredible! It is easy to understand the political and strategic importance of the city... more travel advice
It was constructed on the 15th century but remodeled on the 18th after the earthquake. more travel advice
