Castell de Sant Ferran, Figueres
(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.

  • 距離Figueres市中心不遠,用走的就可以到,城堡有營業時間,但即使過了營業時間,外面還是有路可以繞城堡一圈,推薦大家,即使進去裡面參觀完,還是絕對絕對絕對要走外面的小路,居高臨下的小鎮美景盡收眼底,但此處風大,氣溫低,要注意保暖,小路是砂石路,不會難走,但走完一圈大概一小時。 
  • We have not visited interior but it was still enjoyable to admire the well-preserved structure, photograph the surroundings and chatting pleasantly in a terse and enjoyable day
