It has castle as a name but its tower only and we couldn't go on top of it. Nice touch of history as its nearly 1000 years old. Beautiful view from viewpoint so well worth it.

Do not look for a Castle as there is none! The entry price is 3 euros, but do not expect to see the insides of a castle as this is a simple tower. There is some information provided on site about Lloret de Mar's history,...More

It's closer to Fenals, but is actually on the headland between the two. We walked from Lloret beach, had a look at the Castle, and then carried on to Fenals beach, and got the local bus back.
