Castell de la Suda

Castle in Tortosa

Looming high above the old town, Tortosa's 10th-century fortress is a maze of unfinished stairways, trails to nowhere, and spectacular lofty views, now mostly occupied by the luxurious Parador de Tortosa. Next to the entrance to the parador lies a small Islamic cemetery dating to the 10th to 12th centuries. Wandering the castle is murder on your footwear, but it's an enjoyable ramble.
