Couldn't visit the castle as our 6 year old was too young to be allowed inside. Probably because of the ramparts and lack of supervision (and railings!). No matter - you can just walk down to the stone grain sheds, which are behind the castle. There's also some ramparts you can access without going inside. The museum/inner castle is closed from 12:30-14:00!

We stopped at Lindoso to see the granaries but also walked up to the castle and around the walls. There's a good view of the granaries from the wall.

It’s an interesting castle if only because it epitomises the Portuguese attitude towards health and safety. Great fun.

Portugal does a fine line in ruined castles and restored palaces. The small castle at Lindoso is no exception, but it's in better shape than many and is well maintained. There's also an interesting exhibit about the history of human settlement in the area (dating back to pre-Roman times) although it's mostly in Portuguese.

A very twisting road takes you up to the castle. On the way, look out for birds of prey. The footpaths are uneven and quite steep in places. Wear study shoes/trainers. It was very hot on our visit so we wore sun block, head covering and even an umbrella for extra sun protection. We could not get any WIFI.
