Geocache Description:

Un castell molt bonic de la comarca del Bages.
Nice castle in Bages region

Dalt d'un turó que per la part del darrere fa carena i sobre un banc de roca gairebé circular, s'alça el castell de Castellar, damunt mateix del grup de cases que porta aquest nom.

Aquest castell fou construït probablement al segle IX en un lloc estratègic i amb finalitats militars. Tenia un sistema de torres de defensa que van donar lloc a les quadres dels voltants.
Sota mateix de l'entrada del castell en el vessant que mira el poble de Castellar hi ha un mirador amb un pedrís on es pot seure amb unes vistes magnífiques de l'entorn.
L'església i la rectoria són situades en un flanc del turó del castell amb qui formen un conjunt monumental del qual destaca la silueta del campanar.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Located on the top of a hill, the castle of Castellar raises above the rural houses with the same name.
This castle was built, probably in the 9th century, in a strategic place with military purposes. Its defense towers system is the origin of the surrounding stables.

Under the main entrance, in the village side, there is a stone seat with great views of the surroundings. The church and the adjacent house are located next to the castle and together make a whole monumental set.
