    Walk the impressive 12 century walls

    by angiebabe Written Nov 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Impressive walls, 12th century with 17th century additions, important to provide strong defense for importance to allow the armies safe crossings between Spain and Portugal.

    With impressive views provided from almost right around the whole town - the Castle Parador hotel has some of it so cant walk that bit - and looking out across into Portugal and to the roman bridge below.
    otherwise walk the whole circuit to get orientated and a good overview of the town and then roam through the streets to see the impressive renaissance mansions.

    overlooking the roman bridge good views from the wall walkways solid walls looking out over the countryside looking across into Portugal?
