"Castle Cisterns" Castle Tip by Willettsworld
Castle, Silves: 29 reviews and 53 photos
Inside the castle compound lie two cisterns - one of which is believed to use an old exploration well, 60 metres deep, made of copper that dates from the Roman era. The larger one is called 'El Moura Encantada', after a legend that says you can hear a Moorish princess mourning her beloved at this well where he committed suicide. This cistern has four vaults supported by tall columns and is open for a view where you can walk over the water on clear Perspex glass walkways.
