Absolutely breathtaking castle - it's a lot of fun to explore and you get some stunning views from that high up. Definitely worth the trip!

Thanks! It´s allowed to park in the upper parking, but there are few parking spaces there, so they fill quickly and the people have to park in the bottom parking The promoter of the reconstruction wants to rebuild the familiar castle with a romantic spirit...More

We enjoyed the experience where you walk about the castle on your own and it was a fun adventure. It was nice to be able to set your own pace and not rush through things. The castle itself has plenty of rooms and towers to...More

What an achievement - a fully restored castle and a great insight into how a working castle might have looked. Have to be fit to visit. Good idea to park opposite the El Campero restaurant and walk up the hill. There are a few parking...More

Lovely presence when viewed from afar and better from car park. Unfortunately it doesn't open until 11am and this did not agree with our travel arrangements.

This was a sight for sore eyes. Even our youngest kids (5 and 7) found this place breathtaking. Scenery and view, telling the stories of history. If you are in the area, well worth to spend and hour or two!
