I walked up there on a very windy day and it was great exercise, but the building seems totally abandoned and it reminded me of all the pain caused by wars.

The scale and history of this place is amazing. Make sure you get the audio guide which although it appears rather antiquated leads you round with loads of information. Take time to walk around the walls and visit the on site Cantina for refreshments

This is the largest fortress in Spain and was decommissioned and opened to the general public in 1996. Entry fee is nominal and includes an audio guide describing the uses of different parts. It's quite a long walk around so allow at least 90 minutes...More
