All reviews surrounding countryside royal palace worth a visit charles iii fantastic views self guided tour well worth the trip entry fee fairy tale castle hanging gardens restored castle wonderful castle photo opportunities disney castle spanish castle real castle every angle
In ‘tour-speak’ ABC translates as ‘another bloody castle’. But this one is different - extensive, well preserved, and with lots of interesting rooms, spiral stairs and towers with fabulous views. Guided tour may be unnecessary- just explore.
Now, if you are anticipating seeing something similar to artsy Italian castles, the stylish French castles, the luxury of Swedish or the magnificence of German castles, Spain is the wrong country for that.

This castle is very beautiful and I would recommend to anyone who is in the Olite area. I only spent around an hour here purely for the fact I wasn’t in Olite very long, however I would happily go back a second time and spend...More
I loved this castle. It has been rebuilt but it’s done with the intention of showing how it was when Charles III had it constructed. There are a lot of towers, beautiful small gardens and all can be visited. From the different towers you have...More

This is a gorgeous palace and so well maintained. It’s definitely worth spending a few hours walking around. The architecture is gorgeous and the grounds are immaculate. You will be amazed ... guaranteed!

We didn't book a tour and therefore walked the palace on our own and enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend planning about 2 hours this way you can enjoy the views from all the different towers and within. There is one room that has pictures and descriptions of the ruins when they were rediscovered and how they restored to the way it is today. I agree, stay at the Parador next door, it adds to the entire experience. If possible, reserve a room in the original part of the Parador. Olite is a lovely little town where you can enjoy the Tapas in one of the restaurants in the "center." Enjoy, Olite and the Palace are special and worth a visit.
