This was definitely worth a stop. There are beautiful views from the castle and it’s fun to walk through all the narrow passageways and stairs. It is NOT stroller friendly. We put our 16 month old in a front carrier which was perfect.

I loved this place! Sure you wouldn’t want to be here in the height of summer, but the Castillo de Almodóvar is a great place to explore. Lots of stairs up and down, fantastic views and the GoT stuff is discreet and not the main...More

They took 28 euro for two tickets on festival on Sunday afternoon even though festival has ended and actors already went home. CHEATERS!
