"The less traveled castle" Sabugal by DSwede

Sabugal Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 20 photos

Sabugal is a small city, not far from Guarda. Its population is small and its streets are quiet. Aside from some small cobblestone streets and some plazas, it is a quiet retreat, away from any noise of cities. Arguably most known for the old Battle of Sabugal (1811).

While making a short visit into Portugal from Spain, we also visited Guarda.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The historic center is small and even has a self-walk tour.
  • Cons:After an afternoon, you may run out of things to do.
  • In a nutshell:A very quiet place, ideal for those looking to escape the cities.
