I was in Figueres and I had time to kill before visiting the Dali Museum so I took a walk up the hill to see this Castillo. I like old fortresses and this one is very large. Not much of it is open for viewing....More

Fantastic views. Large site. Stables area really impressive. Signage from town centre could be improved or would have been 5*

I walked up there on a very windy day and it was great exercise, but the building seems totally abandoned and it reminded me of all the pain caused by wars.
