Another very good place to visit, a lovely walk all around, a step back in time. Again we had the perfect weather,just nicely warm and comfortable for climbing the steps. The search for the geocaches added to the interest for us.

Spent a few hours here on a cloudy day in Roses. Very interesting site with lots of history and exhibits about the growth and decline of the citadel. You can walk on the walls and there are great views from many of the towers.
