Castell de La Popa

The castle of Castellcir, also called de la Popa due to its silhouette, which reminds the stern of a ship (popa, in Catalan), dates from the 12th century. Although it is currently in ruins, it is a spectacular and interesting site; it is situated on top of an enormous rock.
Strategically placed at the foot of the castle, there is the Torrassa del Moros, the watchtower for the safety of the lords of the castle.
