This rock castle was controversial between the Count of Ampurias and the Benedictines of the monastery of Sant Pere. It was restored with the construction of a wall in 1283 and several towers in 1391. It was founded in 1285 by the French troops of Philip III. occupied. Feudo de Joan I had her demolished in 1708 to prevent her from getting into enemy hands. It is about 30 minutes walk from the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodas.
