“A Glimpse of Contemporary Life”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

On the street behind the main square are three or four cafes where the local population meets and talks over coffee. We really enjoyed sitting a while amidst the people of the town and getting a bit of the sense of their day to day life.

“A Picturesque town”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

On our recent road trip through eastern Portugal we made a side trip to Castelo de Vide and absolutely loved it. We happened to go on a Friday when there was a market in the town square. So much to see and browse amongst the stalls. A gentle climb up through cobbled streets led us to the castle which offered stunning views of the town and surrounding areas. On the way back we stopped at the Chocolate shop where the owner delayed her lunchtime closing to help us make some selections of her range of artisan, hand made chocolates. We are so glad that we stopped here.

“Another lovely castled town in this region”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Visited here a couple of days after having been to nearby Marvao. A typical clean and tidy town of the region. I wonder if the European money is running out as the castle and old town area has not been renovated to the same standard as it's neighbour.
Very helpful people in the tourist office and the free museum in the castle, although museum may be too grand a title for half a dozen display cases with a brief description in Portuguese only. The man in attendance was very chatty and informative about the town itself and farther afield.
