Know More about this tour

Your evening starts with transport from your selected Costa Brava pickup point to the medieval castle of Valltordera, a 30-minute drive away to the west of Lloret de Mar. After receiving a warm welcome from the castle’s count and countess, descendants of Valltordera’s original owners, take your seat to experience life in a medieval Spanish fortress.

From your theater-style vantage point, listen to a trumpet fanfare and watch jousting knights on horseback re-enact the cut and thrust of medieval swordplay as they protect the castle’s count and countess from marauding men on horseback

Enjoy a drink of rosé wine or soft drink while watching the tournament, or upgrade to enjoy a traditional Spanish banquet of vegetable soup, whole roast chicken and potatoes, pork chops, rustic bread and refreshing ice cream.

The Spanish culture continues after the jousting tournament, when live music takes over. A live band plays the Latin beats of the tango and cha-cha, as drinks (own expense) are served from a full wet bar on the terrace. The evening concludes with a performance of traditional Spanish and flamenco dancing in the castle’s regal ballroom, with Spanish guitars accompanying the drama and rhythm of the dance. With up to 10 dancers performing, the show lasts for approximately 45 minutes.

After the show, relax as a comfortable coach returns you to Costa Brava, where you’ll be dropped off at your selected Costa Brava drop-off point.

    As an instructor of Mounted Combat, and former flamenco student, I went into this show with really low expectations. We expected it to be cheesy and parts of it, like the Pegasus, played by a very patient long-suffering albino certainly were. However, the riding was more than competent, the knightly games extremely well done, and the stage combat excellent. There were some beautiful Spanish and other Baroque horses ridden with skill in particular the Lippizan? ridden by the 'Barbarian' woman, and the actors did a great job of engaging the audience.

    Parts of the flamenco show were a little too 'Broadway' for my taste but that's understandable given the target audience, and even still those numbers were beautifully costumed and well choreographed. The middle of the show is the best, with an amazing guitar solo by Edu Vico my new guitar hero, and solos from the key dancers. The costumed tableaus and interactions with the horses are not as exciting as either the mediaeval show or the dancers on their own, but they add colour and interest and are an impressive display of how well-trained the horses are.

    We ordered the tickets without the meal, and were glad we did, as it didn't look worthwhile. The free drink with the lower priced ticket is actually many drinks as you have unlimited access to at least a bottle of red and rose, plus the waiters brought sangria around. However, the wine was dreadful and the sangria tasted like it was made with Tang, so one drink is about all you'd want. Even still, the show was well worth the price.

    I'm so glad we made the last minute decision to do this!

    After being on the show year before where making written complain, never got a replay back, my family and I went this year to thinking it will be better and better organised but we where wrong.

    The food could be better, the services wasn't optimal. The show was very good.
