Gelida Castle

This fortified complex, located on a rocky spur in the town of Gelida, dates from the 10th century and consists of the castle and the church of St. Peter.

Originally it was a frontier castle during the war between Muslims and Christians and in the 14th century it was converted into a residential palace. Its was finally abandoned in the eighteenth century and its ruins gradually inspired a romantic interest for sightseers and photographers.

Today the castle is a monumental and archaeological site owned by the Gelida Town Council and managed by the Association of Friends of Gelida Castle since 1965. The grounds include the Castle's Interpretation Centre and a visitor service facility offering guided tours, tourist information about the town and the region, tours of the town, such as the Modernist Route and the Farmhouse Route, educational activities, exhibitions, concerts, etc.

Come and discover the essence of Gelida.
