The Castle of Ribes, which dates back to the 10th century, has witnessed the historical evolution of Ribes and these visits explain this process from its early stages until nowadays.
Through pictures, videos, sounds and models, visitors are able to gain in-deep knowledge of the landscape and geological characteristics of the area, the relationship between the Castle and nearby constructions and why the castle sits on top of a cliff. Fauna, flora, and even local cuisine are displayed throughout the visit as well as the lives of some of the most important people who inhabited the castle thorugh its history, from the first feudal lords to the great dancer José de Udaeta.

Fascinating Tour of a Historical Treasure (in English)
The castle has been converted (2021) into a museum/exhibit with guided tours available in English, Spanish and Catalan. On Sundays there are family-focused tours in Spanish. We took the English langu Llegir més ge tour with Xavier at 10am on Saturday morning and it was an excellent experience. The entire visit took 90 minutes which brought us a great understanding of the castle itself, but also its important role in the history of the town. We learned about the evolution of the building group, the conflicts it was involved with, its time as a prison, and its most recent role as home to 'king of the castanets' Jose de Udaeta. Our guide (Xavier) spoke perfect English, and clearly had a deep understanding of the history of the castle, Sant Pere de Ribes, and the region. When we asked questions he always built on what he'd said, and everything came off the cuff with no script in sight. Throughout the tour there was a rich array of audiovisual materials which brought everything to life. I would highly recommend the new visitor experience at the castle which is itself a beautiful spot on the outskirts of the town. It's a bargain at 5€ per adult and 2.50€ per child over five. (Our six year old was more or less happy throughout, although our four year old got a bit bored at points.) My only suggested improvement would be an opportunity to buy a souvenir, or some of the local produce that is shown towards the end of the tour. Recommended, and probably the best thing for visitors to Ribes apart from just strolling around the town and enjoying a drink and a bite in the plaza. Tripadvisor:
