An amazing building in itself, with the added bonus of incredible views over the town and surrounding countryside. The entry fee of just 3.50€ is very reasonable. The plan of the palace, in English, was easy to follow and was extremely informative. Lots of stairs...More

If you are in Olite then this is worth a visit for 3.50 euros per person. There are a great many steps, especially if you want to climb up all the towers. The inside is very plain but it is the views that are the...More

A beautiful castle, perfectly restored. The views from all the tours are impressive. The city is also a nice place to walk around.

This interesting building is devoid of all furnishings which might have given you an idea of what it was when inhabited. Some good views, and definitely worth a visit if you are in Olite, but after a while empty room after empty room seemed repetitive.

If you like castles then you can't miss this one. Even if you don't like them, don't miss this experience. To take full advantage you will walk a lot of steps, particularly narrow and winding, up/down in the towers. The views of Olite from the...More

It was burnt down and a lot rebuilt in the 1920's but they did it well. The castle is pretty empty in side the rooms, but there are lot of towers, and ramparts, and things to wonder around so still plenty to do. Good views...More
