renovated into wine museum..not for those who like to scramble among ruins..you are required to join a tour to see round and therefore need a proficient level of Spanish..

This was definitely worth seeing, but the tour is in Spanish, so you need some of the language to follow.
Interesting castle and has great views of the surrounding countryside.

The castle is located at the top of a very steep hill so if you have mobility problems you will need to get a taxi or transport up the hill. It is a very impressive monument and they have guided tours in Spanish. The views of Penafiel and the surrounding countryside are second to none and you can also visit the wine museum which is inside part of the castle.

Beautiful castle, lovely walk, but do not miss the rest of this gorgeous down to earth little town, including Plaza Coso, little boutiques, and for lunch I recommend the excellent and homey Molino del Palacios, an ancient water mill converted into the most cosy family restaurant, perched in centre on the river banks.
