The castle is free entrance but is in a bad condition. Sure deserves a visit with family and friends to see the gardens and the view. A price could be applied and still be worthy.

It`s an easy walk from the old town (with it`s nice atmosphere) up to the castelo. There you will have a good view over the town and to the sea.

I would advise wearing sensible shoes when you visit the castle, as there are steep steps up to the battlements which offer good views over the city and the bay. In the centre if the castle is a well maintain garden and to visit is a pleasant experience. The castle is supposedly haunted by the daughter of the last Moorish governor of Tavira. It is said that she can be heard crying at night. It is free to enter, but there was a man at the entrance who offered information, who may well have been made unemployed due to the economic consequences of Covid-19, so I gave him a tip.

The ruins of a castle and gardens overlooking Tavira. Enjoyed a stroll around and the views from the castle walls. The steps are pretty steep so be careful.

It is free to enter the Castelo de Tavira; the gardens are lovely and even in February flowers were in full bloom, it must be lovely in the height of summer when even more flowers are out.There was a busker singing when we visited which added to the visit. You can climb the steps and walk whats left of the ramparts for great views of Tavira. There is also a toilet here which is handy to know.
