We found this huge Fortress very interesting in its construction and its history. Entrance fee was only Eu4 and included a self guided audio guide. Worth a visit if you are interested in history.

We have had a house neat Figueres but never the Castle tour until today. Simply brilliant and an excellent tour guide. The undergrad waterway part of the tour was superb and the stables fabulous. What a treasure!

My wife and I rocked up here for a tour, just expecting to walk around the fortifications; we had a few hours to kill before a visit to the Dali museum, so thought this would fit the bill. When we arrived we were offered the...More

We visited on what was the hottest day of the year so far in Catalunia, 40C (!), and some found the walk around the fort tough going. But it was very interesting and the audio guide was very handy. Not many tourists around when we...More
