AMPOSTA CASTLE

An old fortress, on the bank of the Ebro River, which defended the city of Amposta.

Useful information

Amposta Castle is located on a low hill of conglomerate rock on the right brank of the Ebro River, at 11 m above sea level, to the right of the entrance to Amposta via the Suspension Bridge, on the same side of the river as the town and historic centre. This location, benefited by the narrowing of the river, has been considered a strategic spot of great importance since ancient times.

The castle complex still has part of its mediaeval defensive structure.
