“Look elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

You can get just as good a view from the edge of town overlooking the countryside. Castle has not been restored, but naturally, you have to pay to go inside and enjoy.

“Have a look.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

Not for the faint hearted, wonderful vista, for heavan's sake be careful on those steps up to the top tower - it could be much quicker coming down than going up!

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

This is a jewel for the Priego area. The museum presents a lot of infomation on fungi in general and specific species of the area in a very artistic and clear maner. The gardens are well thought out and the message boards don't just give superficial information but is very educational. We were here in March and there were very few fungi out but the potential is there in the season. If you have any interest in fungi, this shouldn't be missed.
They had no sales area which we would have liked. Books or post cards etc.
