Standing imposingly on a rocky hill 100 m (330 ft) above the river below, Miravet Castle (Castillo de Miravet) provides one of the finest remaining examples of medieval military architecture in Spain. Admire the castle’s parapets and massive walls, originally constructed by Spain’s Muslim rulers during the ninth century, which offer sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. The castle today bears Romanesque modifications added after its European conquest in 1153. Explore the fortress’ labyrinth of rooms, 15 of which surround its inner courtyard, including a granary, church, and stable. Guided tours of the castle grounds are available, and free parking is on offer at the base of the hill. The road up to the entrance is very steep, and therefore it is recommended that those with mobility issues use motorized transportation to reach the top.

  • This castle has a very interesting history, dating back to the Moors and later by the Knights Templars. The views are incredible and worth the visit. Uneven ground, leave any high heels in the car.

  • Fascinating for those interested in history & architecture. It gave a good idea of how the Knights Templar etc lived here. Excellent information boards in various languages. Great views. A narrow winding road up from the village. Top storey closed on our visit - June '22 Clean toilets. Popular cafe by the river (although we didn't visit)
  • Parking - huge one, just in front of the castle. No problem to find a spot. Tickets - No que’ so no need to buy it earlier. Visit take max 1h, max. Really! Souvenirs - really poor part of the story. Nothing special, lack of tshirts in all sizes especially the one with knight. English - basics, prepare Google Translator :)
