You can wander around the ruins and walls, climb up the towers, look down over the countryside, watch the martins soar over the trees below. There is a very helpful information office, as well as some archaeological excavations.

Great views from the tower over the surrounding countryside. it is possible to drive up the steep cobbled lanes of Palmela and then have a drink in the historic Palmela Pousada Hotel next to the castle.

The highest place in miles, has a beautiful castle.
Either for a visit, lunch or sleep-over, it certainly deserves a visit.
It is a must on your trip from Lisbon to Arrábida or Setúbal.

Just a short train ride from Lisbon is this beautiful castle with incredible views. It was one of the most outstanding of our experiences in Lisbon. The old town is also worth exploring, all very picturesque and a blissful break from the city.

The view is amazing, but there isn't much to see. You might like it but I wouldn't recommend it, there is plenty other things that are better to see if you go somewhere else.
