Challenging hike with a great view and a cool castle as your reward.

Worth the effort! Not an easy hike even though I exercise daily. I agree with the other reviewers... read more

The castle is in the top of a hill. It was never finished. What is worth are the fantastic view over Amporda region. I suggest to go in a clear day, late afternoon. Take good shoes, the way is full of rocks. It takes roughly...More

Worth the effort! Not an easy hike even though I exercise daily. I agree with the other reviewers who suggest good shoes or hiking boots, a hat and extra water. But the castle and view at the top are worth the effort. Just lovely. But...More

I had great fun with my 4 & 10yr olds climbing to the Cassel de Montgrí, but it did take us four hours to get up and back! As you get higher the track is very rocky and quite uneven, making it hard going for...More

Let's be honest my wife went right up to the castle and said it was worth the climb, I insisted that the plants growing on the hillside needed looking at so I only went halfway up!

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

If our 3 and 6 year old can climb up to the top in the midday heat, so can you! It really is a fantastic experience and the views on the way up and at the top are amazing. The castle's fun too. Bring plenty...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.
