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.

You can come in for free, you can go upstairs to see the city and surrounding area. There are very good views and it's safe for children.

The castle is at the far western tip of the old town. But I'm afraid that's about all I can tell you about it, other than it's basically a ruin. The walls are still there, and that's about it. OK, so you get quite a good view of the Duero valley from the top (if you can find it), but... More

Good explanations in panels of what there was in the old days (some restoration done).The fact that the entrance is free, makes it a plus for this city.
