Fabulous panoramic views await you when you finally reach this attraction, which is well off the beaten track. The guns are very impressive and the fortification built for them is beautiful. There is a car park and you need to walk about half a mile to reach the guns and surrounding area, but it is worth the effort.

WARNING - this is not suitable for young children as there are many safety hazards and unprotected edges.

You had to park a long way away so be prepared to walk and take water. However, once there the views are breath taking and it is amazing that it is still preserved. A shame they have closed certain parts.

To start with you need a car, it is a long trip up into the mountains, small nary roads. But in the end it is worth it. Gorgeous views, nice trails and history. We made a video of our trip on Youtube you can watch it on our channel FamilySundin.

Be prepared for a 10k drive on very narrow, twisty, and pot hole ridden roads, then a fairly long walk from the car park, but I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. Fantastic views and an interesting site. Well worth visiting.

Great bateria to see and lovely views along the coast but drive there is very very narrow and quite scary. The parking at the top is very very small and unfortunately when we reached it it was completely full and we were in a line of around 6 cars and the only way we could get out was to reverse down a steep, windy road. The drive to reach the bateria is not for the faint hearted and once you get near it , if you start to see cars parked randomly at the side of the road that probably means that the car park is full and I would recommend you park where you can. Otherwise you too might have to reverse down a steep, windy road!

We spent here half a day just walking and admiring the view. The place would need some cleaning or the turists should be more avare of their garbage, but if you dont take that in count it is a lovely place to spend some time.

The road to the castle is is on crooked roads and goes up. To be able to get to this road, you should know that it is narrow and narrows the further up you get. It is extremely important to get along on the road and be humble both when driving up and down. There are small meeting places where you can turn in and in some places not at all. Concrete blocks are placed at the edge all the way up. If you are careful about your color on the car, you may need to rethink, because you can easily drive on hard bushes when you meet.

It takes about 30-40 minutes to travel to the top because of the roads, there is a parking lot all the way up but dont expect it to be free during high season. You can also park alongside of the road but make sure you dont stans in the way for passing cars.

There are no toilets, restaurants or dust-bin, so be sure to take some water and food with you. And a bag where you can throw your disposabel, and take it with you.

The view up here is amazing! The castle wasent anything special for me and since it havent been looked after, it can be a bit filthy on some places. But if you are there moestly for the view it is a Wow moment! It is also amazing how they have managed to take up the canons all the way over here cause they are huge!

The visit was made during Covid-19

I have been here a number of times. Be warned it can be a challenging drive to the top. It is well worth the trip though. Stunning views, well preserved site. Fascinating history. Do some research first, it makes the visit more interesting.

Wow, what an attraction...been in Spain for many years and always wanted to go here, went today and it did not disappoint. Completely free piece of history with the most amazing views. The road up is a little hairy at times but well worth it. Not much parking at the top so glad we went in March when it was quieter. Fantastic place to go and see
