A "Culture Bomb"
Jul 2021 • Family
The São Clemente's Castle is a place full of history.
It was built in 1599 by Filipe II of Portugal because of the constant pirate attacks on the village of Vila Nova de Milfontes. This heritage is very well preserved and, specially, very beautiful. The best part is that, from the castle, you can see the diffusion between the river and the sea.
Definitely, i recommend it!

Shocking place
Sep 2020
This place is dirty ,not cared for and one of the worst places we have ever been to.

There is dog excrement every where, no places open. It is shocking. The worse place we have ever been to in a beautiful country otherwise

Avoid at all costs

Beautiful place and view

The Forte is amazing and the most important thing is the place where it is! With the Rio Mira just in front it takes our breath away mixing history with nature. Gotta see that if you go to Vila Nova de Milfontes.

Meeting Point

A beautiful old building hanging over the sea with a breathtaking view.
The square in front of the house is usually animated at night.
It is probably the preferred meeting place for visitors

10 minutes well spent
Sep 2018 • Couples
As others have said, an interesting looking fort with a nice view of the bay, worth a look if you are in the area, but honestly not worth making a major detour for. Since you can't get inside, 10 minutes is all you really need to take a walk around the walls, admire the view and take the obligatory snaps.

Nice fortress at the river bank
Aug 2018
The fortress of Milfontes is centrally situated at the end of the main road of Vila Nova des Milfontes next to the Mira river with a great view over the river as it goes into the Atlantic Ocean. The view is extraordinary and a must if you are in Vila Nova des Milfontes.

Fortress over the river
Jul 2018 • Couples
This fortress was built overlooking the famous Mira river. Unfortunately, it was foggy when I was there, otherwise the view is quite nice.

A charming place
Jul 2018 • Family
A well preserved castle. The square next to it features some artists and merchants that sell some interesting stuff. There are some impressive views over the river and ocean as well.

Great looking castle/fort but not open to the public!
Feb 2018 • Family
I visited Milfontes hoping to visit this place but discovered it to be closed now from any visitors and the found the solid stone structure was for sale with my estate agent Tom at Remax for a reasonable sum of €35,000000. I don’t think I’ll be putting in a bid but it’s worth sitting down over looking the castle and a great vantage point for watching the boats come and go from the mouth of the river Mira!
