Please do not go to Ainsa just for the castle as it is not very special. The best thing is the view from the battlements. There a hundreds of far better castles to visit in Spain!!

It was so easy to enter this old city- the car park was just steps way (maybe because we visted "off season") and we enjoyed the place and the views.

One of the attractions of Aragon, historic town with Placa Mayor and church and walled town. Well worth a visit. Some strenuous walking involved.
