A well presented historical attraction. The walk up from the car park isn't terribly arduous and the signposted walk around the castle is educational and enjoyable. There are some great views over the nearby town of Murol from the battlements. This is well worth a...More

Seriously stunning views and rocking toilets (joke - go before you get up to the chateau as the toilets inside would require a lot of courage!). The English translation is a little tricky to follow but even for the views alone this castle is worth...More
