Walking up to the castle is steep and a bit frightening, but wear good shoes and when you arrive to the top, it’s worth the walk. The view is very nice and if you dare, climb to the top of the stairs inside the castle.

The Castello provides a magnificent view as well as written explanations along the hike up. It can not be recommended for people who have walking issues. Posada is a truly hidden pearl

it's worth it.Super view from the top. Also there is a bar to grab a beer or a coffee. You need shoes to go up. Flip flops not very good for the walk.

Great views from the top - lots of ladder stairs to get up there, culminating in an actual ladder on the final section. Tricky with small children and not for those who don't like heights. Not good for those with mobility problems either. Lovely little town surrounds the castle.

To be completely honest the castle is the only thing of note to see in the town ( I am excluding the beach) its perched high up on top of the hill and offers fabulous views across the countryside and seaside . The views are a great photo opportunity and the walk below the castle through the cobbled streets of the old town are quite spectacular.
The entrance fee is only 3 euro pp so not expensive but its more of tower than a castle, and the the fable of how it got its name ( castle of the bean is amusing ) so I would definitely recommend a visit. However ladies one word of caution, to get to the top you have to climb a short ladder through a sort of manhole, so if you are planning a visit do not a skirt or dress, shorts or trousers are required assuming you wish to retain your modesty.
