Castle inauguration

Portugal’s President, Cavaco Silva, is due in Silves today (Friday) to officially inaugurate the renovated castle and an exhibition within its grounds.

Work on the castle started in 2003 and was part of the POLIS programme, which also saw other parts of the city being renewed (see Algarve Resident edition, August 8, 2008).

For more information about the exhibition entitled Silves em Evolução, the evolution of Silves, which will be inside the castle’s cistern, please telephone 282 440 800.
