Castle Of Lorca reviews
A wonderful place to visit, we went for the longer tour and enjoyed seeing the Jewish Synagogue as part of this trip. more »
Although open in October till 4.30ish, the last people let in are at 3.30! As they say it takes 1.5 hours to do tour. more »
A really great place to visit. The views are incredible and it’s an interesting visit with an audio guide to explain what the history is. Definitely recommend a trip there. Good free parking too... more »
If you like historical buildings (like I do), this is a really good place to visit. Loads of information and things to see so you need quite a few hours to get around everything (I didn't manage it). Very helpful staff and caters for tourists very well (suggest you use one of the translation machines they have on offer).
Fantastic visit. Very nice castle with well laid out self guided audio tour and paid guided tours too. It's a must if you're in this area.
Great place, good for kids lots to do and get out of the sun. Went on a overcast day which helped with heat. Nice hotel and restraint nearby for a glass of wine and a view.
Really interesting history over a number of centuries. If you get the audio tour, make sure you know how to switch it back to English (or your language) on the handset, as two of ours changed back to Spanish
An interesting site. We are currently staying next door in the parador and the castle was well worth the visit.
