Charming Hotel in the Pyrenees

A great destination for lovers of nature, gastronomy and adventure holidays

El Castell de Ciutat is a charming hotel surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens. Perched on a hill at the foot of a medieval fortress, the hotel offers magnificent views of the historical city of La Seu d'Urgell and of the Cadí-Moixeró natural park from all its rooms and dining areas.

Its bright and comfortable rooms have stunning views. From the ceiling in wood of pine until the chimney of stone, each detail tells a story

Part of the Relais & Châteaux group, El Castell de Ciutat is run by the Tàpies family. Together with their team, they ensure that their guests enjoy a warm reception, impeccable service and fine dining. This is only possible thanks to the love and dedication of four generations of hoteliers.

Castell de Ciutat Fortress

In the heart of the Pyrenees, 1 km from the historic town of Seu d’Urgell, the fortress of El Castell de Ciutat has borne witness to the region's history since the 9th century. Home to the Counts of Urgell in the 11th century, and occupied for military reasons in subsequent centuries, the marks left by French invasions can be seen on its walls.

In 1969 the Tàpies family acquired the property, which had until then belonged to the Spanish government. They then renovated the fortress as a place to hold events and built a mountain hotel a few metres away.

Excellent service

The service from the staff couldn't have been better, constantly seeing to our needs. The installations were in perfect condition and the self-service buffet was of a very high quality. The room had great views and they let us check out a bit later. I would definitely recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed.

Spectacular, a place to return to

Wonderful hotel located very close to La Seu D'Urgell. A little oasis for disconnecting from the stress of the big city. Time stands still. The best thing is the excellent service, both in the hotel and at the restaurant. Every detail is taken care of, nothing is missing. Wonderful views from the restaurant where breakfast is served (great breakfast by the way!). The wellness zone is unbeatable, especially the jacuzzi with its mountain views. And the castle is stunning. We will definitely be returning. I fully recommend it. A unique and unforgettable experience. If you are able to book a room with a terrace then you'll wake up to wonderful views. There are no bad points.

Great discovery

Very welcoming and homely hotel. Huge room with views of the La Seu. We were travelling with 2 dogs and the staff were wonderful and very understanding. Fantastic spa with outdoor hot water jacuzzi. The restaurant was of an equally high standard. I would stay there again.
