About
Situated on top of an old volcano, the ancient medieval castle of the viscounts of Cabrera maintained control over the Royal road, half way between Girona and Barcelona. In the 17th century the castle underwent changes to adapt to new times and to the defence strategies of the modern period. For this reason, despite being a fortress, it is now commonly known as Hostalric Castle. Hostalric castle is a military fortress build on uneven terrain. The grounds follow a system of bastions, and therefore boast the typical defence elements of the period such as the interior quarters, moat, exterior works and covered path. The Cavaller, the highest part, occupies the space of the old castle of Cabrera.

We went having checked the website which claims to have guided tours of the castle and walled area. When we got there it is closed and looks as if it has been for a while. There is a sign pointing to visitor information at the castle but it points at locked gates.
