The camino doesn’t go up to the castle, but it’s a must for the exceptional views of the beautiful countryside as well as the fortifications.

Consider splurging to stay at The Place, the only accommodation inside the castle walls. The charming hotel takes full advantage of multiple terraces for fabulous views, and expatriate owners Vicky and Mitch are extremely welcoming, give lots of personal attention and serve delicious food.
