#4 of 19 in Historic Sites in Costa Dorada
Castle Tourist Spot
Standing imposingly on a rocky hill 100 m (330 ft) above the river below, Miravet Castle (Castillo de Miravet) provides one of the finest remaining examples of medieval military architecture in Spain. Admire the castle’s parapets and massive walls, originally constructed by Spain’s Muslim rulers during the ninth century, which offer sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. The castle today bears Romanesque modifications added after its European conquest in 1153. Explore the fortress’ labyrinth of rooms, 15 of which surround its inner courtyard, including a granary, church, and stable. Guided tours of the castle grounds are available, and free parking is on offer at the base of the hill. The road up to the entrance is very steep, and therefore it is recommended that those with mobility issues use motorized transportation to reach the top. Arrange to visit Miravet Castle (Castillo de Miravet) and other attractions in Miravet using our Miravet family vacation planner.

  • Worth visiting and paying for. Try to get there in time for one of the tours as it will make your visit much more enjoyable. Great views.
  • Very pretty templars castle, you should take the guided tour. Also the views are spectacular and the village itself very quaint and lovely.
  • An amazing place to visit. A little exposed so if its dark, or overcast be sure to take a coat. But if you love history you'll love this place!
  • Interesting templar castle. Good views over the Ebre and in remarkable condition since it was a battleground in the Spanish Civil War. Drive up or down could be interesting if someone is coming the other way!
  • Lovely drive and scenic spot. Had done a lot of castles over our 1,100 Spanish road trip and found this had best information and one of the nicest outlooks.
