Castles and fortresses

Get ready to embark on some of the most spectacular journeys to the past, to times when the lands of Girona formed the frontier between the Arab and Christian worlds, to times of kings, counts and knights. You’ll see imposing castles that preserve intact all their mediaeval splendour, still protected by their defensive walls, and others in ruins, discreetly hidden amid the vegetation. They all bear witness to our history. So are you coming?

The castle is synonymous with Llívia's golden age. It is located at the top of Puig del Castell (Castle Hall). It has an upper enclosure formed by a rectangular master tower with four small round towers and a lower enclosure that envelopes it. The wall was fortified by rectangular towers on the sides and circular towers with turrets on the corners. The remains date back to a period spanning from the 9th to the 15th century, when the castle was destroyed by the troops of Louis XI. Accustomed to the protection afforded by the castle and the privileges that it conferred, Llívia was reluctant to lose everything, especially the right to provide a safe haven for the inhabitants of towns with no defences. In the 16th century the Bernat de So Tower was built (1584-85) in order to uphold these rights.

Cultural Asset of National Interest

If you like wild places and walking we suggest climbing to Bufalaranya Castle, which was built in the eighth century when the territory of Roses was integrated in the Carolingian Mark. Standing on a hill with difficult access its fortified perimeter has the characteristic of opus spicatum. An air of mystery shrouds the charming remains.

Documented in 1019, this building, recently restored as the town hall, has a lovely interior parade ground surrounded by towers and crenellated walls at the back, from the 13th century. Since 1967, the Music Festival Board of Calonge has made the most of the excellent acoustics of the parade ground to offer musical concerts.

Castle documented in 1180. It was the residence of the bishops of Girona. Declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1972. It is an extraordinary example of civil architecture from the Middle Ages. It has a central courtyard and underwent several significant reforms in the 14th century and again in the 16th and 17th centuries. In front of the façade, you can admire the remains of the old city walls, which surrounded the parade ground of the castle.

The oldest written document found with references to the castle of Cervià is the last will and testament of the nobleman Sunyer Llobet, dictated from one of his chambers in 1024. During the Middle Ages it was a strategic fortification since the municipal district of Cervià, which formed part of the county of Girona-Osona-Barcelona, bordered to the north with the counties of Empúries and Besalú, traditionally hostile to that of Girona-Osona-Barcelona. Until the second half of the 15th century the castle belonged to the Cervià dynasty, a long line of noblemen who always stood out for their loyalty to the counts of Barcelona, who later became the kings of the Catalan-Aragonese Crown. In the 15th century the castle fell into the hands of the Xammar family, from the town of Medinyà. In 1788 it was purchased by the Fonsdeviela family, which owned it until 2013, when it was acquired by Cervià de Ter Town Council.

From when the castle was built (possibly at the end of the 10th century), some remains have been preserved of the original fortification that occupied a prominent hill situated in the centre of the walled enclosure, which offered a commanding view of a broad stretch of land in the lower Ter and of the road traditionally used to travel from Empordà to La Selva. These remains, of great scientific and archaeological value and occupying a surface area of 800 m2, are the subject of a comprehensive restoration project carried out by the University of Girona, thanks to which the castle will be recovered and turned into a museum site in the near future.

The other elements that formed part of the fortified enclosure of the castle of Cervià and that have survived to this day are from a later period (13th and 14th centuries). They include the southern wall, the castle entrance alleys or the clock tower, the best preserved architectural element of the monumental complex.

Every year in the first week of May, the Friends of Ancient Cervià association organises the Cervià Castle Day, an educational day focusing on one of the most interesting heritage elements in Cervià de Ter.

Situated as a lookout and defence fortification atop the Poncella point above Roses lighthouse, this castle dates from 1544, having been built in the reign of Emperor Charles V, who laid the first stone.

It has an irregular star-shaped floor plan. The fortress was divided into three floors of terraces containing rooms for accommodating 350 men plus provisions and ammunition for withstanding a long siege.

Built between 1294 and 1302 by James II of Aragon to control the movements of the counts of Empúries. An unfinished castle as only the walls of the square layout were built, along with the moats and water tanks, and the four cylindrical towers that encircle it, joined at the four corners. The walls are 13 metres high and can be reached by means of a recently built spiral staircase. From the top of the towers there is an impressive panoramic view of the Empordà coast.

Located at he top of a hill, the castle of Rocabruna must have been one of the largest defensive constructions in Ripollès. The first historical mention of the castle is in a document from 1070. Although it is now in ruins, many of the walls that divided the rooms that formed part of the fortification can still be observed. Part of what was the castle chapel has been preserved, along with a rectangular nave, a round-based tower and a rectangular open tower with some loophole windows. The views from the castle are wonderful.

Situated at the top of a hill that separates Lloret de Mar and Fenals beaches. Its chapel was consecrated in 1079 but all that remains of the original fortification are the foundations of the keep, the east wall, some ruins on the southern side and a series of silos hollowed out of the rock, now covered over.

The origins of the Castle of Sant Joan are the origins of the town of Lloret. Back in the 11th century, the area of land delimited as Loredo was ruled over by Sicardis of Lloret (1031-1103).

The Third Coalition War that pitted Great Britain against Spain and France, concluding at the Battle of Trafalgar, had a disastrous effect on the tower of the Castle of Sant Joan. In 1805 the British Navy bombed the tower, destroying the fortified enclosure once and for all. The Castle remained in disuse throughout the 19th century and was reduced to ruins.

The castle stands at the top of the mountain of the same name at 172 metres, offering a magnificent view of the whole of Blanes and the neighbouring villages. The structure of the castle consists of a cylindrical tower of 15 metres surrounded by a moat and a rectangular walled area. Documented as early as 1002, it was called Forcadell. It was clearly designed to defend the Viscounty town from the dangers that arrived by sea.

The oldest known written documents with references to the castle of Finestres date back to the year 947. This fortress, situated at 960 metres above sea level, overlooks the plain of Santa Pau and the valley of the River Ser. It belonged to the counts of Barcelona and little remains of it today: walls in ruins and the remains of a water cistern. The castle was seriously damaged by the seismic movements of the 15th century.

On the outskirts of Sant Feliu de Pallerols stands an imposing mediaeval fortress, Hostoles Castle (now practically in ruins). Only a few rooms and walls remain, along with the keep and a magnificent 13th century water cistern.

In all likelihood it dates back to pre-feudal times (10th century), built to watch over and defend the territory conquered by the Francs. It gradually became a powerful fortress, built by peasants under the orders of the lords of the land. It also served as a shelter for bandits and as a quarry for the neighbouring farmhouses. It was deemed the most famous fortress of the peasant defence of the mountains.

Until the end of the 17th century this was the main tower of the Abbot’s Castle-Palace, the temporary residence of the abbots of Sant Pere de Rodes. Along with at least six other towers placed at intervals along the former town walls, the keep formed part of the defence system of Llançà.

When the church of Sant Vicenç was built in the early 18th century, the keep ended up being attached to the church façade, thus losing much of its former glory. However, it still preserves its original features: a broad rectangular layout, built with small stones, and with a Gothic window on each of its walls.
