Castle
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.

  • We went during the week my wife and I along with three guys and were lucky to have a beautiful day and the best guide that could be to tell us the history of the Castle and the village of Miravet. It made us spend 3 hours completely absorbed telling us a lot of anecdotes from its origins until the civil war. Visit the Racó del Temple and contract guided tour. It usually lasts between an hour and half and two but if the fence is inspired the time flies and make you relive what life in the Castle. Magnificent interpretation of historical texts.

  • I recommend the visit to the castle especially on thursday when a guide is giving a guided tour around the site.  more »
  • The conservation of the Castle allows you to get a perfect idea of what was the site of Miravet. Excellent views and convenient accessibility. Interpretation and explanations tailored to the visitors center.

  • 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.
  • Amazing castle with amazing views. There was a lack of guidance tho.
  • Fun place to visit. Take one of the local guides they are worth the money.
