Beautiful castle, and not all of it is in tip top shape which adds to the charm (but watch your kids). Catalonians are so proud of their towns and area, great to talk to (underlined). Was planning to stay in Cardona for a night, but...More

Castle built in 900,s, of course restored and hosts a 4* hotel. Grey day in autumn but the visit was worth it. Tourist point at the castle for extra info.

We were staying in the Parador above so had easy access to the castle. It is fantastic to wander around the ruins and castle grounds and imagine the castle when it was lived in!

An impressive restored castle that dominates the surrounding landscape. Great views from below and even better views once you climb to the top. So much to see and do in this castle.
