Description

One of the most important castle in Catalonia. An austere and imposing castle on a superb site overlooking the river Ebre. The fortress consists of a series of buildings and walled areas, notable amongst which are the inner bailey and the Romanesque chapel. Built by the Moors in the 11th century, it was one of the last redoubts of Islam in Catalonia. Count Ramon Berenguer IV donated it to the Order of the Temple, who modified and extended it during the course of the 12th and 13th centuries, giving it, in large measure, the appearance it retains to this day. Such was its importance that it was the seat of the Provincial Master of the order, the superior for all the territories of the Catalano-Aragonese federation.
