Picturesque village and castle, timeless place! I feel like I'm in a fairytale each time I come here.
Lovely place great views
Really lovely castle, great scenery unfortunately it was closed for work when we tried to revisit two weeks ago but the village of Castelnou is definitely worth seeing. There are some great craft shops, bars and restaurants. We visited in October and May and had no problems parking either time. A must visit!
Great location but unfortunately closed for renovation, and you only find out after climbing a steep hill.....
Very impressive castle on top of a mountain wich overlooks two valleys. The ruins are majestic.
