Restaurant Slow Food:

We offer you a visit with the key to Hostalric’s medieval quarters so that you can be the main protagonists of a route at your own pace. You can complete this route in your own time, opening and closing the spaces that you visit while walking through the walled town.

The visit starts at the Tourist Information Office, where you will be given a key and a route pamphlet that will allow you to discover the most unique and significant corners of the medieval village: you will walk along the path going round the city wall, go up to the Frares Tower and the Ararà Tower, enter the Relliguer cave, admire the entrance gate to the medieval quarters and have your breath taken away by the six hundred metres of medieval wall that goes round the outside of the old royal road. All of this while enjoying splendid panoramic views of the surroundings.

Restaurant Slow Food:

El Castillo de Hostalric está construida sobre una colina de piedra basáltica. Se tiene constancia de que en 1145 ya existía una fortificación en este emplazamiento, aunque la fortaleza que ha llegado hasta nuestros días se construyó en el siglo XVIII, principalmente para mantener el control sobre la gran vía de comunicación que era el camino real.

El diseño original de la fortificación moderna de Hostalric fue obra de Francisco de Santa Cruz, ingeniero militar al servicio del archiduque Carlos, y las primeras obras de fortificación permanentes tuvieron lugar durante 1712 y 1713, a consecuencia de la Guerra de Sucesión, aunque las principales obras para dejar en condiciones de uso la fortificación se llevaron a cabo entre 1794 y 1795, en el transcurso de la Guerra del Rosellón.

El castillo de Hostalric es una fortificación militar construida sobre un terreno irregular. El recinto sigue el sistema de baluartes, encontrando así los típicos elementos defensivos de la época, tales como recinto interior, foso, obras exteriores y camino cubierto. El Caballero, la parte más alta, ocupa el espacio del antiguo castillo de los Cabrera.

Restaurant Slow Food:

The urbanism that follows the trace of the Royal Road (Bous Square, Carrer Major and De la Vila Square), 10 medieval towers and 600 metres of wall, extending from Bous Square to the Barcelona gateway, remain from the former walled precinct of Hostalric.

The wall was built with basaltic stone extracted from the hill that the castle is built on. The wall is tall, and is topped with squared merlons. Behind this was a parapet walk connecting the towers. These towers are cylindrical and semi-cylindrical, and 10 of them still stand, including the Convent Tower and Frares Tower, which were part of an exterior precinct.
