Next to the city of Cardona, easy to reach by car. A visit to the castell is recommended, because of its history as military fortification and good maintenance. It holds an hotel and a cafeteria. Nice view from the top. An interesting fortification built for more than 500 ago.

Was road tripping around Catalonia with my girlfriend (she is from Barcelona) and we checked out this castle. Despite the years of war and bloodshed the region has seen this castle has not be conquered by force and it is very well intact. Currently it is part of a hotel (which I am sure is lovely) but we did not stay there. Luckily there was a tour in English and we got to be escorted around the grounds and learn about he history of the castle and Cardona. The tour was worth it, as you got to see much of the castle and it's church and had a nice visual presentation at the end of it's siege during the war of Spanish succession. If you are in the area of Cardona, I highly recommend visiting this.

If you look at the website it seems to imply that access to the castle is only on official guided tours at pre-booked times. This isn’t entirely accurate - the official guided tours get you access to a couple of extra places in the castle. The rest of it is entirely free to access. Part of the castle is a Parador, and the café run by them at the very top is very nice - good service and good food. The castle is pretty huge, and bits of it are in better repair than others. There are very few places you can’t go, even if there are warning signs which don’t bar you from entry, just telling you to be extra careful. If you walk up from the town, it’s a brisk climb, but well worth it. Glad we did it.

Great view from the castle, however the tour was all in Catalan and we only speak English and Spanish. The church was only open with a guide so they should have offered more tours or been able to give information in Spanish. The cafe was good, laura provided excellent service which is one of the only reasons this review isn’t horrible. The hotel looked nice enough especially for $120 a night, but I found the reception desk very rude. With better customer service it could be a great place to visit.

Cardona makes a nice day trip from Barcelona (it is about one hour away). If you combine the visit to the salt mountain with a visit to the castle, you will enjoy a comprehensive cultural getaway. Both attractions offer dramatized visits… if you have young kids (5-12), I would suggest to go for them.

Worth a stop if you are in the area. We spent two nights in the hotel (parador), but it is interesting enough just as a castle. Commanding view of the city and surrounding countryside and distant mountains. Has a church and convulted hallways, battlements, a central bastion you can climb. Worth a bit of time if you are in Cardona, though I wouldn't drive out of my way to see it. Very good restaurant, too.

Beautiful castle, and not all of it is in tip top shape which adds to the charm (but watch your kids). Catalonians are so proud of their towns and area, great to talk to (underlined). Was planning to stay in Cardona for a night, but rather took a daytrip from Solsona (which I loved so much). The town is not renovated like Solsona, so I prefer Solsona as there is more to do and see (also because of size). But well worth a visit. Main attractions is the castle, the salt mines and the surrounding trekking in nature (which also got old charming buildings), so it only takes a few hours. The castle does not take much time, but spectacular view and so much history! The whole town has a great view, as it is on top of a hill and the castle the highest point. Fee for entering inside the church and buildings, but you can walk around and top of the castle.

Super unprofessional staff. Needed to wait 20 min a restaurant just to have their attention to give our order. Generally hotel staff leaks professionalism,no feelings of 4 star hotel.only good thing there is a castle and very good views.We had very bad experience.Not worthy to spend that much money!

The castle is in perfect condition. It is beautiful, massive and huge. The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular. Free parking near the castle. By booking a guide, for a fee, you can also get to the parts of the castle that are closed to the public.

You can drive or walk up...we drove, it´s steep! Wonderful views of the surrounding area and a lovely cafe/restaurant for a cold beer at the top. There is not so much to see as this castle is now a hotel but you can wander around and if you buy a ticket you can enter the huge church. We did not do this in the end but still enjoyed very much. Tip: Make sure you go into the town itself and explore. It is a beautiful medieval town with great views and little streets. Really nice day out!
