“Great Views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Castle has been restored well and the views form the top are extensive across the town and over to the Coto Donano national park.

“Historically Interesting and Great Views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We were fortunate to have a local historian as a guide and so she made the place come alive to us. Just the large collection of ancient maps is worth the small 6 Euro entry fee. The views from the tower over the city are really wonderful!

“Much more interesting inside than out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The castle doesn't make itself too attractive from the main entrance, but go inside, as it's a Tardis! Just €5 each, and well worth it, if only for the views from the top of the tower, and the large balcony area below it. Fascinating old maps abound, and the guides (Spanish speaking, English not so good) were very helpful, although it's self-guided. The museum of costumes and dress at the end is also worth a visit. Bar is also worth a drink, overall a pleasant and truly interesting experience.

“Perfect view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

The main reason why it is worth visiting is the view from the tower. You may see the mouth of Guadalquivir, Donana Park and of course panorama of Sanlucar
