This Moorish castle was built in the 10th century to protect the river port that then provided direct access to the sea. It was then one of the last Moorish strongholds in south Portugal.

Stop At:

The long sandy beach of Monte Clerigo is to our opinion one of the most scenic beaches on the west coast. Is it the fine sand, the amazing light, or the easy access, especially with children? Let us bring you here so you can explore it yourself. The 3 local restaurants offer a fine lunch for every budget and taste. It is our favorite beach to spend time, and we´re looking forward to show you this little gem.
