Sanlucar de Guardiana, Alcoutim, PT

Greet Spain!

In Alcoutim it is very easy to greet Spain. The houses on the other side of the river are already spanish! The town is called Sanlucar de Guardiana. I don't know if there is a possibility to cross the border here by boat, but the other town also looks interesting with the castle and the windmills.

Edit: The walkable city guide downloadable via the Camara Municipal is refering to a boat by which it is possible to get to the other side. For the guide, check my tip.

Castle, Alcoutim, PT

The castle and archeology museum

In case you have seen the Menhir do Lavajo before (see other tip) or you are planning to drive there afterwords, I recommend you to visit the museum in the castelo. Here you will find the other menhir which was brought here from the Lavajo site. There is a reference to it on the information plate at the Menhir do Lavajo I outside town.
Otherwise the castle is more like a park, less then a fortress, but with the museum worth to be visited when being around.

Let me know if the weblink does not work anymore!

Directions: You can't miss the castle.
