The castle oversees the Rio Guadiana. It is a lovely place to be in the afternoon sun. The archaeological museum is probably interesting, but your Portuguese language skills have to be up to date. All the descriptions in the exhibition are in Portuguese. We did not understand the lengthy descriptions. We hope that the museum management will spend some Euros coming year in translating the information. In a separate room a film is shown continuingly on the history and surrounding grounds of Alcoutim. The film is subtitled in English. We found it an interesting event.
