If you pass by Oropesa, it is worthy to make a stop and visit the castle and eat around. You will need to recover after climbing the towers and enjoy all views

We enjoyed walking around and enjoying the views from the castle. We stopped on our way to Lisbon and it made for a nice break from driving.

The castle itself was well built, we had fun looking around and noticing the skeleton in the cage hanging over the top, fantastic views and well worth the visit

Just driving past and saw the castle in the distance, well worth stopping. Only €3 to go round the castle, very well preserved, fantastic views and a nice coffee afterwards at the parador. Didn't explore the village but looked nice and pleasant.

Climb to the top of the castle tower for some truly amazing views of the surrounding countryside and the mountains in the distance

Was nice to visit. Price was 3 euro. But you can spend some time walking around. I would advice to give it a chance. Maybe with children you have to be a bit careful!

The castle is well maintained and offer nice views around oropesa. When we got there it had movie nights in the square which gave a nice environment.

The main attraction seems to be going up to the ramparts which doesn't really float my boat. Not much to see but I think they may have made bells there but only Spanish description. Managed to see it all in less than half an hour
