Silves really is a delight, isn’t it? One of the finest preserved Moorish fortifications in the country, the Castle of Silves has stood with pride in this spot for millennia. If walls could tell tales, this place would be the life of the party. It is a castle from the excited mind of a child, picture-perfect in every way, from the distinctive parapets to the imposing statue of Sancho I that stands guard. Temporary exhibitions are often held here.
