  • Beautiful place, with passionate guides (in Catalan or Spanish) who provide great insights to the history of the place.
  • Beautiful hike to the top from the free parking lot. €6 adults, pay in the gift shop at the castle entrance. Fantastic efforts in repairing and restoring the beautiful castle!!! Amazing views, wonderful history, excellent self-guided tour. Will do it again when we have visitors!!
  • We couldn't get in as it was closed but the sorrounding is quite spectacular, well preserved, also the view is so wide. Very nice walk from the parking lot, the forest is cute.
  • While the castle with the exposed place at the hill gives you a marvellous vista around, the visit and check for opening times might be quite adventerous. There are different information from the website and the on-site information about opening times; unfortunately it was closed when we arrived there. But due to the reforms currently undertaken I suppose that major parts would be closed anyway.
  • Amazing castle, i recommend taking the tour as they explain a lot of interesting details about the history of Catalonia
