Great view of the city and surroundings from atop the wall. A shame that none of the interactive exhibits of the castle museum were functional.

A simple castle located on one of the hills making up the town of Lamego. It is not the most impressive yet worth a visit to the free exhibition contained inside the tower keep. The views from up there are also worth the visit.

There is nothing special, but the castle is well renovated. The view from there is nice and they have some information about the plane's history. You can visit it in 30 minutes and learn a bit more about Lamego.

I would say that it was more interesting to go up the hill via tiny streets than the small castle itself that has some interesting old weapons exhibit and some history to learn.

We parked the car and were intending to go to another place but thought we’d have a look at the Castle first. It’s good to see the Keep but our favourite thing was actually wandering through the streets inside the old walls. The homes are...More

Like many of the castles, a few cannons and barrels, no need to visit if you have already seen a few
