Located on the opposite hills of Basilique de Valera, this beautiful castle was once ruined in the year 1788 because of fire. You can see the ruins still left on the rocky spire of the hill. In order to reach over there, you need to climb up steep stairs, winding around the hills. The stairs might look scary but the scenic beauty surrounding the place has a healing effect to make you forget about your fear for heights. Once you reach the top, cross the ring wall surrounding the castle and walk on the irregular top of the spire. On the south-western side corner, you will find the 15th century old chapel and on the west side a pentagonal fortified building. The highlighted features of the castle are the frescoes, the slender watch tower, southern wall of the castle and some of the interior portion of the castle that has remained undamaged even in fire.
