Its greatest era was between the 13th and 14th centuries. Its location on the peak of a 649 metre high mountain of the same name allowed the castle to dominate a wide sector of the coastal hinterland, an area of transit of the highest importance. The origin of the castle dates back to the end of the 10th century. The castle had three areas; the lower level, the armoury and the upper level. Josep Aragay (1889-1968), in his poem “The Castle” contrasts, with romantic longing the description of Bernat Desclot:”Fine curtains and windows, bed and wardrobe which one day brought beauty inside, carpets and silks which made the hostel comfortable in dark winter, they are far gone, and will not return, inhospitable a home without fire and without warmth “.
