Castillo de Miravet

Img 1: CASTILLO DE MIRAVET

This castle was originally Muslim but was taken by El Cid in 1090. King Jaime I gave the castle to the Bishop of Tortosa in 1233, in thanks for the latter's help during the reconquest of Valencia. It was abandoned in the 16th century. The castle stands on a hilltop and dominates the whole coastline of Cabanes. Although it is now in ruins, we can still see the remains of the walls and the settlement, with several pointed and semicircular arches.
