  • It looks impressive from the outside, not very interesting inside, but great views from the battlements.  more »
  • Beautiful place. Cheap tickets to see the castle inside. Amazing view on the city. Worse of time and money to visit.  more »
  • Castillo del Ray is a 13th Century castle overlooking San Vincente de la Barquera's town and harbour. The monument is spectacular for the audacity of its engineering on such difficult terrain. It is not ornately appointed but it is but it is spacious, with stairwells and parapets for defense that offer terrific views of the harbour it once stood guard over. Also, it provides scope for a child's mind to run rampant. Castillo del Ray ticks all the boxes for an intact, bijou medieval castle. Well worth the modest entrance fee.
