Castro Marim provides a stark contrast to Monte Gordo and it nestles between two hills. Even though they are low hills they have a commanding view of the broad estuary of the river Guadiana, which marks the frontier between the Algarve and the Spanish province of Andalusia.
The larger of Castro Marim's two separate fortifications stands on the hill on the riverside of the road winding through the village. You can drive almost right up to the front gate and then walk around within the battlements. You will see that there is a castle within a castle. The inner one is square with a cylindrical tower at each corner. In the 15th-century, this was the headquarters of the Order of Christ, the religious-military order that succeeded the Knights Templar in Portugal. Later, the castle was greatly expanded. In the 17th-century it was augmented by a second fortification, the Fort of São Sebastião, which stands on the other side of the village. The fort was built to strengthen Portugal's defences when it regained its independence after 60 years of Spanish subjugation (between 1580 and 1640).
The area around Castro Marim is a protected natural reserve (Reserva Natural do Sapal), rich in bird life. Its salt pans and marshes are feeding and breeding grounds for many species of water birds, including Black-winged Stilts, Avocets and Little Terns. Flocks of several hundred flamingos may be seen feeding in the pans out of breeding season. For directions and information about the species you can expect to see, ask the office just inside the main gate of the castle. There are also guided tours, but you have to book in advance.
