I liked the castle. Fun to walk around. No particular history, just an interesting construction by a local businessman. Great views of the surrounding valley. BUT a word of warning. Don’t use the restaurant there. I made the mistake of not nailing down the price...More

If you are in Lamas this is a must see. Entrance is 6 soles. Not tremendous but worth seeing nice view from the terrasse.

We came here with a tour and it was cheap enough. The entrance price was included. The castle was the main attraction. It was nicely done but for European visitors probably not worth it for the architecture. The views though are definitely worth a visit....More

The castle is beautiful. So an Italian guy lives there, and it is stunning, the location, but all you really get to do is walk through one great room, go in a 3 story tower, eat at the restaurant with like 5 tables, and look...More
