Disney Castle comes to live

Love this place. It is so pretty. I bet it is even prettier during spring and summer. Feels like a princess just walking in it. A must-see if you are touring north of Spain.

Really this place is amazing...felt embarrassed to pay only 3.5 euros. It's a fairy tail, don't miss it! We drove 2 hrs from bilbao just to see it and did not regret it. Awesome place!

We really enjoyed our visit to this palace. The renovations that have occurred are extensive and marvelous - giving a real sense of place. It's wonderful to explore the galleries, towers, an aviary, ice well and the garden with the mulberry tree, which is a special national monument. Wonderful!!!

It is nice to see even only outsides if you do not want to go in. Entrace costs 3 euros and includes explanation brochure in different languages. Nice to walk around and see the towers and views from towers. There is also small exhibition how the castle was restored. Fun for all family.

This restored castle puts disney's castle to shame. It is a magnificent series of buildings and has the historical dialog to go with it.

The tour books say if you asked a little girl to draw her dream castle it would look like this. I'm sure the team from Disney must have visited here. Enough of this twaddle. The castle has been renovated and more work since my last visit 8 yrs ago. It's true there's not much to see inside by wow -... More

Pick up a brochure in a language of your choice and explore this great little castle. Having visited the King and Queen's chamber and hanging gardens, no less than 4 different towers all designed differently, but all offering great views of this pretty old town and surrounding countryside.

Well worth a visit. This palace has been under renovation since 1932 and is a real 'fairy tale' castle. Only €3.5 entry for a good two to three hour tour. The town is also very nice with a selection of bars and restaurants a really quaint town wich is worth exploring.

This is palace was built on top of Roman ruins and is located in a small town about an hour and a half from San Sebastián. You can climb the towers for great views of the town and surrounding farmlands. It is worth a stop and can be explored in less than an hour.

It's a fairytale castle that outdoes Disney. Adults and children will have great fun exploring the corridors and towers of this important castle. It can get busy but the annoying tour parties avoid the tight spiral stone stairways that lead to the upper viewpoints (and miss much of the castle as a result). Entry fees are negligle at just 3.50E... More
