The castle is free to enter and is the end point of a nice historical walk through Zamora.

As castles go it is fairly average, but they have made the castle as accessible as possible with new walkways. There are good views over the surrounding area from the towers.

Surrounding the castle is a nice park with sculptures, where you can rest in the shade for a while.

I have been told that the Castillo has undergone major transformations. It went from being a medieval castle to becoming a centre for education that sheltered art and languages students. More recently, the castle became a museum. You can now go in and see the ruins and the original construction. You can also go on the highest wall and walk along it to admire the breathtaking view of this small charming city. My only recommendation is that you don't wear heels on your visit.

The Castillo de Zamora.
This small castle who never was a “Palace” but yes a fortress to defend the city dates from the 11th century, but only a small amount of the original pieces are remaining. It has been built on a rock and adapted on the irregular form of it, the castle has 3 different towers two are pentagonal and one hexagonal. To reach the castle, when you have visited the cathedral of Zamora, go out and turn left and pass the gate to the park, continue about 100 meters and you will arrive in front of the entrance, it took the community of Zamora 4 years to bring the restauration to an end and so the castle is open to public from 2009, in total a nice location with some nice views and a free entrance.
Open from 01/04 till 30/06.
From Tuesday till Sunday – 10.00 to 14.00 and from 17.00 to 20.00

If you visit the old part of Zamora you might as well visit the castle. It looks like there is an admission charge because there is someone at the entrance in a booth but admission is free. There is not much to see except the spectacular views over the cathedral.

Impressive castle with lovely views at the far end of the old town. Ideal as an evening or early morning visit for the views.
