Miravet Castle (Castillo de Miravet), Miravet

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.

  • A little disappointed since I expect access to more parts of the Castle. It is shortly restored and the visit is very short and uninteresting. £ 3.50 per person it is not worth.

  • This magnificent Castle, huge and visible from many of the peoples of their region, dominates the banks of the River Ebro in arrival and departure for tortosa, just below its meander. The great Castle, partially restored, has witnessed all our history, ancient and modern, even up to the Carlist War and the battle of the Ebro, almost final episode of our Civil War. Built by the Arabs, Al - Andalus, then passed into the hands of the Christians, the Templars guerreros-monje. Then, when they fell in disgrace, the order of St. John, etc... but here is, our peoples, in Miravet, especially memory. Incomparable and art from the bottom frame in the arenal.

  • We have a very rewarding visit disfutado. A stroll through history. Marc has guided us to know every corner. We have experienced battles, the Knights Templar, the Carlists and isabelists and Muslims. Up to the Iberians and Romans. We love it. At the foot the majestic River ebro. Thanks Marc!

  • Really terrific place absolutely a must see if you're in the region. Views spectacular!
  • 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!
