Standing imposingly on a rocky hill 100 m (330 ft) above the river below, Miravet Castle (Castillo de Miravet) provides one of the finest remaining examples of medieval military architecture in Spain. Admire the castle’s parapets and massive walls, originally constructed by Spain’s Muslim rulers during the ninth century, which offer sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. The castle today bears Romanesque modifications added after its European conquest in 1153. Explore the fortress’ labyrinth of rooms, 15 of which surround its inner courtyard, including a granary, church, and stable. Guided tours of the castle grounds are available, and free parking is on offer at the base of the hill.

Beautiful place, filled with history with stunning views of Miravet and the river. Entry at 5 euros per person so largely reasonable. Plan to take the small boarding with the car (3) to cross the river of Ebre from one end to the other.
A visit to this castle will impress you, for it's historic value and beautiful views. Take the boat to get you on the other side of the river. more »
Beautiful village on the river ebro. Had a lovely morning strolling around finishing with a coffee overlooking this amazing river. Castle is lovely. I hear there is a lovely pottery shop here but I missed it!!
Lovely castle on a hill by the river Ebro. Couple of bars, great ceramics shop just outside town and two good restaurants. Interesting walk up through the town to the castle with great views of the winding river below.
