Look - I get the siesta. But even my Latina wife thinks this is ridiculous. Restaurants, stores, whatever - but tourist sites? Seriously? Well, the front of the castle looked cool, but I’ll never know what the inside looks like. I guess the castle is...More

Beautiful architecture of a bygone age. A wonderful spot to visit, plenty of places to purchase souvenirs or a bite to eat. We stopped there four two hours on our bus tour and really enjoyed the experience.

Beautiful architecture! A lot of work as gone in to restoring the palace. Price very reasonable. €5 per adult. Concessions €1. Free Sundays and for children under 12. The Regional Assembly of Aragon work in this building so not all areas are accessible to the...More

An interesting visit within walking distance of the town Centre. Very little information available in English.

From outside interesting. From inside very average - not worth to enter and not worth to pay entrance fee. Guides only in Spanish. If you are enthusiastic and think you have to visit this attraction, go on Sunday morning, opened to 14 and is free.

when the Moors were expelled the Aragonese had more sense than to destroy all their magnificent buildings and instead enjoyed them: this colossal castle is most special for the beautiful Moorish decoration in the interior

I went by public transport, which was easy. From memory, there was plenty of street parking nearby, but it was a Sunday. It is away from the CBD, so it should be OK
