Nice hiking to the castle at the top of a hill not too far from the sea, which make the hike still bearable on hot day. It's not a hard walk, but it does not have shade, and can get very hot, so bring enough...More

I've never climbed up a mountain before but this was a good first choice. You definitely must have trainers or hiking boots as the ground, at points becomes rocky. Took an hour to climb. I would say you must have some good level of fitness...More

I have holidayed in L'Estartit since a young child but never actually took the walk up to this castle until my late twenties. It's a fairly long walk from Torroella de Montrgi, with some parts of the trek being quite steep over rocky ground, but...More
