Very reasonably priced entry and plenty to see once in. Tells the history of Spain at a level most tourists do not see. Well worth a visit, but watch out there are a lot of steps and hills to walk up so you need to...More

Park up in the large car park and a two minute walk takes you to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the plains south into Spain. The castle itself is best seen from outside, you can pay to go inside but tbh it's nicer seen from the...More

I can bet that more than 25% of the visitors pay this castle a call after the fame it gained for Kingdom for Heaven shot partly here in 2004. This castle is doubtless one of the most emblematic fortresses in Spain. Its well-kept condition makes...More

I took my 7&8 year old girls. It wasn't crowded. I highly recommend the audio guide. It's informative and engaging. The views from the castle are breathtaking and much of the castle is still in tact. My daughters loved climbing through the castle.
