Pleasant square beside castle. Great views from the castle. Interesting history displays. This strategic castle is in the right place to survey all the land around. Well worth a visit if you like history

I was there with my girlfriend during vacation. Place with awesome atmosphere. During the way back to town you can buy great ice cream at small shop in the middle of the way. Love the atmosphere and chilled people :)

Ancient castle where you can see all the town from , if you are interested in how people lived in the past is a "must place" to visit

Very old castle with lovely chapel. Fantastic view over the gorgeous Calafell village and beach area. The local goverment should exploit the local business more. The village is quite unique in this area, therefore much more commercial activities should be undertaken to atrack more tourists...More

Interesting and very well documented, kids enjoyed climbing around the old structures and finding ancient graffiti for a while, then they lost interest. Good if you're interested in ancient architecture and want some time away from the beach, only took about 15 -20 mins to...More
