  • Situated in the middle of nowhere in the Pyrenees with nothing around but trees and mountains, this is a wonderful ruin to visit. The climb up is a little steep but it is worth it and the best part...

  • Stunning scenery which will take your breath away. Quite a drive up a winding and sometimes narrow road. It was 36c on the day we went so the walk from the car park to the castle was pretty tough. However a beautiful and historic location which is well worth a visit.
  • Beautifull castle, a bit of a tough ride and walk to get to but definetly worth it for the view. Do be careful on windy days!
  • Amazing views,reasonably priced. Good gift shop at ticket office. Bit of a steep path,not possible to access if you are in a wheelchair. Breathtaking castle,very dramatic landscape. Really worth visiting.
  • Incredible views. Watch out on a windy day though!
  • Ruins of Castle on hilltop. Great views of surrounding countryside.
