Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
With a footprint of 32 hectares (79 acres) and an imposing series of walls, barriers, and moats, Castell de Sant Ferran serves as one of the finest examples of 18th-century military architecture in Spain. Marvel at the massive fortifications of this fortress, designed as a classical star fort, as you wander its barracks and warehouses. Admire panoramic views of the surrounding plain of Emporda, the countryside of Girona, and the nearby Pyrenees. Learn about the castle’s part in the defense of the Spanish frontier as you explore its inner pavilion and earthworks. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as the citadel’s large area can require a great deal of walking between sights.

  • Really, we travel in time. A beautiful walk, in a beautiful setting that makes us see the Spanish empire. You can walk as much inside the fort on the outside. The views are breathtaking. 360 ° view. The sides are beautiful seen from above. Personally the price is a bit expensive, but you quickly forget when we visit. The visit... Super. Don't miss this tour.

  • We went here on the recommendation of exclusive TripAdvisor because, unfortunately the Tourism Office of Figueres there would have advised the visit. What can we say? It would be a shame to come through here without visiting this magnificent place! The fortress is beautiful and very evocative. The economic cost of the visit and with audio guide (also in Italian) included. The bar has a very below average.
