On a high cliff, offering breathtaking views of the Costa Brava and the surrounding valley, in the heart of Begur is an ancient medieval castle-fortress, unfortunately, not very well preserved to this day. Built on a strategically convenient place, the castle dates back to 1019 (!) and has seen in its lifetime many glorious military battles and brave men, including famous Mediterranean pirates. Today, at the top of the cliff, among the ruins of the once formidable military structure, an observation deck has been set up; here you can safely climb and admire the magnificent landscapes.
A short story about the history of the castle, accompanied by photographs can be viewed at the link – Begur Castle.
