Castle of Silves

For a historical event!

Built by the Almoravid Arabs in the 11th Century, the Silves Castle is a reflection of the splendour attained by the Moors in the Algarve. Declared a national monument in 1910, it is today the finest monument, and more importantly, the best preserved castle in the Algarve. This impressive castle – built out of the red sandstone of the region and lath and plaster – is situated at the top of the hill, surrounded by a curtain of outer walls and eleven turrets. With a fully renovated 2.000m2 area, this place of excellence accommodates various types of events, also enabling the realization of dinners up to 800 people. In 2003 rehabilitation works made it an equipment of excellence!
