  • A gem of Gothic architecture that allows to know the evolution of civil architecture in enough detail for 4 centuries. Its location is completely strategic and if you're lucky and visit on a completely clear day you have flat first beautiful Montseny (especially Les Agudes) and panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the beginning of the Costa Brava in Blanes, the Barcelona's Tibidabo mountain town and the mountains of roses in the Alt Empordà. Highly recommended making the guided visit. Explanations of very good quality and making very enjoyable and interesting. We did it with 3 teenagers of 12, 14 and 17 years at any of the 3 was made them heavy and boring. To access the castle must be borne in mind that from the place that makes the vehicle must walk a minimum of 30 minutes to the Castle. To choose whether to do so through the forest, surpassing the gap on uneven ground, or by a forest track fully accessible for people with mobility difficulty.

  • From the parking lot is nearly an hour's hike very badly indicated paths. I suppose it's good to make it in mountain bike. When you arrive, you find yourself a castle with a restoration which, to my personalmete, I didn't like anything, with granite blocks, stones of different colors and much too visible forge... It is also half... nothing I didn't like the excursion. The only good thing are the stunning views.

  • Beautifully renovated although not completely finished yet. It was a long and steep walk from the parking but worth the pain (it was 31 degrees Celsius)
  • Very beautiful view from the top of the tower
  • Excellent views, a walk to the top from the car park took around 30 minutes, and was steep. Castle was closed but looks like to will be good to visit. Definately worth and trip.
  • Great way to spend the day. It's a 30 minute hike (with kids) to get to the castle. The castle,itself, is well preserved and the guide book explains the layout very well. The reservoir is a must. If you like castles and like hiking through nature, this is perfect.
  • Great to visit with children
