Great castle to visit. Small and beautifully maintained. Gives a wonderful view over the river into Spain. Two very interesting display rooms. One about games a and one about the history and archelogical finds. Take a bottle of water with you in hot weather.

Nice to see from the outside, but really not worth paying for unless you have time to kill. There is a moderately interesting museum inside with archeologic exhibitions. If you're short on time, money would be better spent on a boat ride to Sanlucar de...More
