Catalonia During the 16th Century

The visit to Montsoriu takes the visitor on an itinerary through a classic Mediterranean medieval fortress, and in this case it is by walking within the great Gothic castle that has been preserved in Catalonia. Montsoriu maintains the same structure, and a good part of the rooms and original details, of the great castle that was enlarged and reformed in 1350 by Viscount Bernat II of Cabrera. This is why the visit to the castle (we recommend the guided tour so that you get much more information on the historical aspects) is a live lesson of what military and civilian life was like in one of the most impressive fortresses of the Crown of Aragó.
