The rusted sign points the way...
The ramparts sit atop crumbling old rocks but remain intact.
Cracks and fissures in the rock serve as a warning of what time has in store for all things.
The town of Begur as seen from the castle.
The weather vain and 360 degree map are quirkier aspects of the castle.
The views, even on gloomier days, are incredible.
To the north, L'Estartit.
To the west, the sun sinks behind the mountains towards Girona and Garotxa.
Montseny is 76km west of Begur.
Wonderful vistas in every direction.
