So as you drive through the province of Girona, Spain you'll be able to see this distant castle on a high hilltop from almost anywhere you go. It's Montgri Castle and it will certainly arouse your curiosity. The hike is strenuous but not very long....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

It's a long walk up but well worth the effort when you get to the top. You get the added bonus of climbing up one of the towers too so that you can walk round the slightly vertigo inducing ramparts. Start early when it's hot.

Best place to see the most beautiful views. The walk up is about 50 mins and recommend going early in summer as it is cooler. You can go up the towers and see for miles across the region. There is not much shade but there...More
