There is not much left of original buildings around tower however there is beautiful view over city from the tower itself. At cost of 3.00 have no regrets of visiting and beautiful pictures.

Steep climb to "castle". Coastal path damaged inaccessible. Access via main road not that well signposted. Can climb to top inside tower. Entry only 3 euro. Stunning views from top. Mainly only tower left of castle some remnants of castle walls exist.

It has castle as a name but its tower only and we couldn't go on top of it. Nice touch of history as its nearly 1000 years old. Beautiful view from viewpoint so well worth it.

It's fantastic to look at from the outside, it's a hell of a way up to it. We were a bit gutted as we went at the time it was meant to be open. But we waited a long time and it didn't open. Apparently...More

It's closer to Fenals, but is actually on the headland between the two. We walked from Lloret beach, had a look at the Castle, and then carried on to Fenals beach, and got the local bus back.
