  • Nice views and the castle is preserved. However there should be more information, more elements to provide a better understanding of its past life and context. It's the only one with the 5 towers... Nothing is mentioned there or provided by the attendant at the tickets office. If it wasn't for the museum the visit to the castle would be meaningless.
  • Very nice fortified castle on the highest spot of Sabugal, it has a few towers and a main keep, and the walls can be walked all around: entrance cost is only 2€. Try to check out the surrounding village with some nice schist houses. Very nice!
