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...More

There is not much left of the castle but a walk along the walls will allow you to admire an impressive view and to enjoy the quiet atmosphere of this little gem hidden in the middle of Algarve.

The streets and views around the castle are very atmospheric. There is not much of the castle left however. Salir is probably less attractive than Alte

The castle doesn't have a lot to it but it does have some impressive walls. And by walking the walls you get fabulous views of the local area. Definitely worth doing.

Visited this historical site to view the archaeological dig displayed under the glass floor inside. A short, but nice walk around the old walls of the ruins and some nice views of the valley below.

First, a confession. I'm Welsh and live about five miles from the second biggest castle in Britain (Caerphilly). Thus it takes a lot to impress me where a castle is concerned. There are certainly more impressive castles in the Algarve than these ruins at Salir,...More

The drive up to Salir from Loule is barely worth the effort. The old part of the village is very pretty but not easy to get to. You have to park up and walk up the steep hill to get there. Forget castle. Think some...More
