Tudela - Sant Grau Castle (4th-2nd century BC for the Iberian settlement; 11th and 15th for the castle; 16th, 19th and 20th for the chapel)

Tudela - Sant Grau Castle (4th-2nd century BC for the Iberian settlement; 11th and 15th for the castle; 16th, 19th and 20th for the chapel)


The Iberian settlement was discovered in 1935 when remains of walls were identified and material was collected that could be dated between the 4th and 2nd centuries BC. Very little is known of the settlement since it has not been excavated and no visible structures remain. Tudela castle is documented from the middle of the 11th century, linked to the counts of Barcelona and abandoned at the beginning of the modern age. Amongst the noble families who held rights over it, the Montcada family stands out. Some remains are visible (although they are rather damaged), of which the most significant is the lower part of the main circular tower, which still survives up to a height of 2.5m. There are also the remains of some walls, most of which come from a later building, as well as other unidentifiable ruins.

Sant Grau chapel is documented from 1548, and it may be that it took over from the castle's old chapel. A hermit was in charge of it until 1936. The chapel is a single nave with a semicircular apse, and the façade features a door with a rounded arch and a tile rose window, which seem to belong to alterations from the 19th century. Abandoned and severely damaged in 1936, its remains have been brought together and its surroundings have been developed. Currently Sant Grau is besides the mountain bike route, there is a map and it is also a watch point for the forest.
