Castell de Begur

Castle in Begur & Around

There is little to explore aside from the ragged ruins of this medieval castle, still in much the same state as when it was wrecked by Spanish troops to impede the advance of Napoleon’s army in 1810. A steep, signposted 1km walk leads from central Begur to the ramparts (25 minutes), with breathtaking views over hills rolling towards the Mediterranean.

The Elizabeth Taylor film Suddenly, Last Summer was shot at the castle in 1959.
