Castell de Montgrí Fortress

Castell de Montgrí Fortress

About 5 kilometers from the Mediterranean coast between the towns of L’Estartit and L’Escala there is the small town of Torroella de Montgrí, famous for its two ancient towers, the only surviving fragments of the once formidable medieval walls surrounding the city – a square tower Portal de Santa Caterina and the notorious round tower Torre de Brujas (translated into English – the Tower of the Witches).
But today we will not walk around the city, but go on a pedestrian walk and climb up a mountain to north of Toroella, where the mysterious fortification is located – the fortress Castell de Montgrí.
As a reward to those who can overcome the difficult climb – breathtaking views of the sea and the surrounding valley!
A detailed story about the history of the creation of this fortress accompanied with fotos can be viewed here – Castell de Montgrí.
