Fodor's Expert Review Castelo de Mértola

Mertola Castle/Palace

Built in 1292, this castle contains carved stone from the Roman, Moorish, and Christian periods. The courtyard has a very deep cistern in the center. From the castle's Torre de Menagem, you can look down on archaeological digs along the sides of the fortress, and out over the river and rolling hills toward Spain.
