“Superb”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Amazing place - history, modern conveniences and a stunning range of views across the city. Happened to be the Navarro star wars exhibition on and with 2 little boys that was the icing on the cake! Excellent display and super cool video showing Vader taking over the castle!

“Neat to visit”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Fabulous view and neat to see, unfortunately we couldn't read much as it was all in Spanish but we stopped for snacks and a nice little cafe up there and looked through the little markets up there.

“Breathtakingly Stunning Castle”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

The castle is perched on a steep hilltop overlooking the city and harbour. The castle is stunning and the views are as breathtaking. On a clear day you can see as far as to the mountains, This will defo be a highlight of your holiday, Night time is also a breathtakingly stunning view.

“Holiday visit”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Great views over the city !the harbour and beautiful blue/ green sea and an excellent place to take photographs. Plenty to see and read in English, although some were closed during siesta. The only charge is if you take the lift to the second floor (free if you get out at the first and walk the rest of the way)

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

The castle is perched on a steep hilltop overlooking the town and harbour. The castle is excellent and the views are as good as any views you'll ever see over a town. This will be a highlight of your trip.
