Petit Futé's opinion on FORTRESS HOSTALRIC
The 600 metres of Hostalric walls represent 1,000 years of history. A walk around the castle where you can peacefully enjoy the splendid views while visiting the main areas of the fortress (guardhouse, powder magazine, bombproof gallery). A visit to the castle's interpretation centre, where it is possible to watch a video - in French - will take you on a journey back in time and show you the functions and transformations of the medieval castle of the Viscounts of Cabrera (11th century) throughout its history. Situated on an outcrop of basalt rock, it was during the battles against Napoleonic troops that this fortification experienced its hours of glory. The structure currently visible dates from this period.
