Fodor's Expert Review Castelo de Portalegre

Portalegre Castle/Palace

At the base of Portoalegre's sloping cobblestone streets stands the town's castle, which dates to the early 14th century. Sadly, the castle's walls were disassembled in the 1930s to open streets around it to traffic. Now a wooden structure, somewhat controversial in its design, links the castle's body with an adjacent tower, where you can climb up for splendid views of the cathedral and city.
