Very interesting the life of Los Templarios and how much they help to los pergrinos. The Castillo was restaur..and now is a very interested place to visited.
This is a partially restored Templar castle and quite photogenic from the exterior. It has a small exhibition of medieval life and a good library, if you are into Spanish history. The views of the town are great from the ramparts. A reasonable way of spending 1-1.5 hours.

Just a wonderful place to be and walk around. There is not a lot of artifacts inside but the castle is the draw. It has impressive views of both of the town and the mountains/valley.
There's not a lot inside this castle but it's quite large and you can walk around part of the walls and get some views over the town. It is very impressive from outside though - a real fortress look.
Interesting castle that is very well interpreted. Includes background and history of Knights Templar.
Such careful thought in creating a design that made visiting an ancient castle a delight. The highlighting of the history, the views over the town and the library of ancient books, made this a most memorable event.
Enjoyed thoroughly. Nice to have free admission on Wednesdays. There was a class visiting while I was there and they were very respectful of others. I took lots of photos.
Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely location - would be good if audio guide was included in the price.
