Castle of the city

Free to enter. Gives great views and interesting to visit and study. Spotlessly clean around the whole area and a pleasure to enjoy the peaceful surrounds.

If you have some time in Zamora during the day, it is well worth walking to Castillo de Zamora. You can walk through the ruins of the castle (we were there in mid Nov, and it was free) and have an amazing view of the city and cathedral. Make sure you walk along the top wall, the view is fantastic.

The Castle is located in the historic center, where all the tourist thing are. Is nothing amazing, but was a formidable tour.

This castle has been restored to it's former glory and a wlk around the ramparts gives you great views of the surrounding countryside and the adjacent cathedral. It's a must visit to Zamora.

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... More

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... More

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.
