NileGuide Expert tip:
The bars and cafes opposite Castelinho make a pleasant place to sit and admire the building
Just a couple of minutes' walk from Largo do Guimaraes, the hub of social and gastronomic life in Santa Teresa, sits the picturesque Castelinho ('Little Castle'). As well as making a wonderful photo opportunity with its hilltop location and fairytale-esque appearance, Castelinho hosts dance, music and drama workshops and art exhibitions. There's also a boutique hotel within the building.
