The ruins of the Castle stand on a flat area on the southern slope of Montagut. There are still notable remains of the walls of the Castle and one circular and three rectangular towers. A wall of about 10 metres high rises up in the central section, surely what remains of the rectangular Keep tower, with an opening that must have served as a window.
The Gavarres mountains, together with the Begur, constitute the northern end of the Catalan coastal mountain range. It forms a large arc that opens to the North, halfway between the counties of Girona and Baix Empordà, and covers an area of 350 square kilometres.
