Given everything else you can see in Spain, this would definitely not rank among the great places to see. On the other hand, if you want an authentic, uncrowded, unspoiled destination with some interesting local history attached, you just might enjoy this understated site. The...More
It is an interesting site and history to go with it set in a stunning location but it was better and more interesting before they fenced the place off and started yours there. Many times I have been and there is nobody in sight.
Unenhanced ruins with detailed multi-lingual interpretation boards scattered round the site. There was a ticket kiosk but it was closed when we visited off season, late in the day. The road up to the ruins is fairly long and winding. There is some parking by...More
