"The Great Castle, perched high, hence very visible" Castle Tip by Durfun

Castle, Silves: 29 reviews and 53 photos

Do make a trip to the Castle, walking through the Old Town, past the Modern Museum & old Fort Gates.

Being on a hill, it's an incline, with a mix of both steps & sloping roads, though once at the top, you get great views from the Castle.

There is an old cisterna worth musing over. Also you'll see various vantage points to climb up & appreciate the separate sections of Silves that are visible from each.

Archaeological digs are currently taking place & they are designing a museum within the walls, hence several sections of the Castle are not accessible at the moment (May 2006).

Address: Old Town
Directions: Follow the narrow roads leading you to the top of the hill with the Church & the Castle.
