Compact and well preserved. Great views over the surrounding town and countryside. The climb isn't too bad although the last stretch of steps might be a struggle for some. Well worth the effort though.

The views are fantastic, but the best bit for me was the little church with very important and unusual mediaeval frescoes including one showing the stages of decomposition of the corpse of Saint Makarios. The entrance fee is worth it for that alone!

The view is probably the best reason to climb up here, but the fresques in the church are also very good (no photo allowed). To get the whole valley, with the river arriving in the sea, and the colorful Boss just underneath, you need to...More

The castle is mostly ruins with a walk to the top which is what makes it worthwhile so be prepared to walk. Once you reach the top the view of Bosa is incredibly picturesque. It was a very hot day when we visited so good...More

After a few days sitting on the beach I pulled on the hiking boots and walked from Bosa Marina to Bosa following the road on the far side of the river. Crossing the bridge into Bosa and then through the narrow streets of the old...More
