Algarve Buggy Tours

Go off the beaten path on a buggy experience that reveals the lesser-known inland region of The Algarve. Exploring in an all-terrain buggy grants you access to under-the-radar spots that are inaccessible by traditional tour vehicle, which results in far fewer crowds. Plus, if weather allows, you’ll have chance to take a dip in the river.

Mainly ruins which can be seen from outside and a rather pleasant stroll round the top of hill where castle stood to see views of the luscious growth below. A couple of restored towers can also be seen.

The castle is well worth a visit, the vies from the battlements are very good and there is art if acts of what they have found dating back to the medieval times. The town of Silves is very pretty with narrow streets leading down from the castle with plenty of cafe and restaurants To choose from . Allow a good 1/2 day or more , also by the river is the medieval bridge. Top tip at the castle look out for the entrance fee if you are 65 and over it’s a reduced entrance fee.

We enjoyed the town and castle although there is not much left of the castle. The museum was interesting with the glass floor over the excavations. The guide could not speak English but we managed to converse in French !

Don't expect to much from the castle as you will mainly see some old walls. But the view from the top is nice and compensates you for the effort of the way-up.

After a pleasant but long drive through the hill to Salir we were looking forward to seeing the castle then some refreshments ...... There is nothing left of the castle except a small modern building displaying some rubble and oldish bowls. The one small piece of wall that is left isn’t original as it has been patched/ repaired over the years . Why , I don’t know because there is very little left . The attendant can only speak French so don’t have any questions. No cafe to be seen anywhere .
