The route will start at the port of Roses, where, there, you can park tour car and go to the first stop.

The first castle will be the Castell de la Trinitat, which you will find following first the Far road and later the road towards Cala Canyelles. All the way you will find signs to easily reach the castle.

The Castle of Trinitat is a castle from the years 1544-1551 built in the hands of the engineer Luís Pizaño, but ordered to be built by Carlos I.

Once the history is known and the first castle has been visited, you will take the Far road again until you reach the Rhode avenue where, there, you will take the GI-614 to reach the next stop, the Castle of the Garriga, a castle of the 14th-19th centuries declared a cultural asset of national interest and  that it was built for Francesca de Vilamarí.

In the middle of the first and second castle you will find other points of interest such as the center of Roses where you can discover the Ciutadella de Roses and the history that surrounds it.

Finally, after visiting the Castle of the Garriga, you will continue along the GI-614 and, following the signposted indications, you will head towards the last stop, the Bufalaranya Castle, a 10th century castle located to the north-east of the urban center of the town. Once there, contemplating the views and the vegetation that surrounds it, you will gather strength to return to the starting point.
