Located over the Lima River and close to the Spanish border, Lindoso Castle was strategically placed to defend Portugal and is now considered one of the country’s most important military monuments.
There are two museums within the inner walls of the castle. One focuses on the military history of the castle whilst the second is devoted to archaeology and the ancient settlements of the surrounding territory. There is an admission fee of €15 for the inner castle and museums. Instead, we were content to walk on and around the outer walls of the castle. Great fun for my 8-year old grandson and one of his favourite parts of the trip!
