  • Great views from up here. The reconstructed and simple castle/fortress is a bit overplayed. A video is given inside in Spanish only. The grounds and vistas from there are well worth the trip. Stairs a...  more »
  • One hopes when he decided to climb to the Castle, after seeing the visits of the city from the Park Towers, that the views will improve or that the Castle will have some content that justifies the visit. Neither the one nor the other. Restored the castle with a modern structure, but lacks content. A video that makes a review of the history of the city and little else. Even the views are worth, not just improve that we have from the Park. Visit €3.75.

  • Cartagena is a city rich in history and therefore be sure to visit. But for the average tourist suffice 2 days and then have you reviewed! What definitely should not miss a visit to Castillo Conception. It is a brisk walk up but you can also take the elevator for €2 and then you're on your destination in a few seconds. Here you have plenty of good views over the Harbour and the city, but you visit the Castillo also gives you a good insight into the past and the present of this city.

  • One of our first day excursion on Freedom of the Seas cruise on Oct 6, 2017. The castle was a rebuilt ruins and have a few artifacts. The view around the area was good. The washroom facility needs maintenance and cleaning. Considering the number of tourists that stops by, it is the least the management could do. More signage or guides could also help to explain the exhibits.
  • Great place, not as big inside as you would expect, but still worth a visit.
  • Good views, but nothing special. If you have visited any serious castles in Spain, this is not worth the €3.75 entrance fee or time. Some videos, all in Spanish only, but one has (poorly done) subtitles. Small pamphlet in Spanish and English.
  • good old castle with great views of the city.
  • Beautiful place with some amazing views.
