Do not look for a Castle as there is none! The entry price is 3 euros, but do not expect to see the insides of a castle as this is a simple tower. There is some information provided on site about Lloret de Mar's history, some small ruins and the rebuilt tower. You can go up to the tower and... More

Well signed and at least there was something to see once there ( see my comments on Turo Rodo Iberian settlement).Quite a steep climb in places with a lot of steps ( if this is an issue). Three euros entrance (half that for seniors) was proportionate for the what must be a hard job keeping the place in good order.... More

It's not easy to be found and then there is a fee to enter it - 3 euros if i am not mistaken. If you are coming from the Llloret Beach you can mistake the route - not everywhere are signs. Be sure to know beforehand its openning hours - we get there 10 minutes before closing...

I should preface this by saying I study medieval history and the mere prospect of a castle gets me quite excited, but this was really cool. The walk up from Lloret was so pretty, wish stunning views and good paths, and the admission fee was totally proportionate to the level of work I'm sure is needed to maintain the keep.... More

Only one tower has remained from the old castle. However, after seeing the wonderful view available from its top, one gets mesmerized by the beauty of the Costa Brava. You need to walk a little to get there and prepare to pay a 3 euro entrance fee. Estimated visit, maximum 30 minutes.
