Castle is interesting piece of history in Calafell. View from the castle is amazing. Staff was really friendly and gave us a map for the castle and details how to walk through. I recommend to visit this castle if you are in Calafell.

A good bit of local history

If you stay in Calafell you will see the castle on the top of the hill. It is a short drive from the seafront and worth the trip. Even though it is quite small it is a welcome break from the noisy front with its restaurants and shops, so a well kept piece of days gone by.
It has a number of things to look at and explore and kids will love it there too.

Beautiful view from ancient castle

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 and have the village atractieve all year round.
The castle is worth the vist, the village could offer more that currently is offered!
