Don’t bother, not much to see

The tower which was closed is the only thing left of the castle. Overshadowed by a power station / antenna substation right next to it. There was a small tourist info building which seemed to have been closed for a while now. Surroundings were generally dirty, glass on the ground and kids where day drinking on a school day on the benches in the park. Views are ok, but guarda is a run down dirty city which is even more clear from a higher vantage point.

Castle or Fortress, never mind...very interesting.

on the top of the hill, overlooking the whole area from above, this fortress and later castle dominated the village of Guarda, interesting visit, to understand, how many times the place was conquered and reconquered.

Not a Castle

At least not anymore. Only the keep is left, and views are beautiful. Close to a few restaurants, the Igreja da Sé and hotels.

Has a quick look as part of the self help walking tour of Guarda. I'm sure history buffs would get more out of it but I enjoyed the view.

Nice view

Not much left of the original castle apart from the main keep that stands at Guarda's highest spot at 1056m. The view over the town and the surrounding countryside is worth the walk up there.
