Conception Castle - Review

Situated on a hillock overlooking the port and harbour, the Castillo de la Concepcion, aka Castillo de los Patos is a 12th century fortress which offers spectacular views of Cartagena. The beautifully laid out lawns and gardens of the castle are home to peacocks and fowls. Within the Castle is a museum which has exhibitions on the history of Cartagena with its Roman and Moorish ancestry. A contrasting marvel is the panoramic lift that takes visitors up to the castle. While at the castle, do explore the water cisterns, the observation deck and the low archways.

Conception Castle, Cartagena Reviews

  • The view from outside the 'castle' is quite spectacular (and free!). However, with respect to the 'castle' it is not worth the 3.75 euros admission. There is very little to see once inside (just a short movie, visit inside a cistern, and a panoramic view that is no better than the surrounding hillside). Quite underwhelming.

  • One of our first day excursion on Freedom of the Seas cruise on Oct 6, 2017. The castle was a rebuilt ruins and have a few artifacts. The view around the area was good. The washroom facility needs maintenance and cleaning. Considering the number of tourists that stops by, it is the least the management could do. More signage or guides could also help to explain the exhibits.

  • Great place, not as big inside as you would expect, but still worth a visit.

  • Good views, but nothing special. If you have visited any serious castles in Spain, this is not worth the €3.75 entrance fee or time. Some videos, all in Spanish only, but one has (poorly done) subtitles. Small pamphlet in Spanish and English.

  • Great place to visit and learn!!
