Castell de Sant Ferran, Figueres
(4.3/5 based on 480+ 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.
