This is an easily accessible castle and you can park right outside of it. It is huge and surrounded by a moat. The downside is, as with many castles, it is under renovation and you can't go in. Still, the outside is most impressive and...More

Stands high on the hill and can be seen for miles before you get there, unfortunately we couldn't get in after driving up the gravel road to the castle. The castle in its commanding position with its dry defensive moat.

The castle sits on top of the hill on which Chinchilla is built and the stunning views are well worth the trip. I went up twice during my stay and was fascinated by the cave houses and the amazing architecture. Well worth seeing.

Saw it on the hill ahead off of the expressway and stopped, expecting that it might be like so many of the other restored castles that we've seen. Not... No, this is a unique experience to see an unrestored castle that also saw significant damage...More

Like some other castles in smalls towns, I have no idea if, or when, this castle is open. The town is small so it isn´t difficult to wind your way up the hill to the castle. Although it was open, it was worth a 20...More
