Description:

The castle of Montsoriu, located in the eastern sector of the

Montseny...

The castle of Montsoriu, located in the eastern sector of the

Montseny Natural Park and Reserve of the Biosphere, is one of

the most relevant examples of medieval military architecture in

the Mediterranean region, and it is considered the best Gothic

castle in Catalonia.

Archaeological and reconstruction work begun at the end of the

20th century has made possible the recovery of a considerable

part of the splendor of a castle with over 1,000 years of history,

that was described in the 13th century by royal chronicler Bernat

Desclot as one of the most beautiful and noble castles in the

world. In the mid-14th century viscount Bernat II of Cabrera, admiral

and counselor of King Pere III el Cerimonios, transformed

Montsoriu castle into a magnificent and completely unassailable

Gothic castle palace.

This is well worth the visit, however it does require stamina to see. You will need a vehicle to drive up the mountain, a fairly narrow road which is paved. Parking is good, then comes the rest of the journey. Suggested walk time is 30-40 minutes, and yes it does take that long up and down. Walk is on a... More
