Requesens Castle - Puig Neulós.
The castle of Requesens is located in a zone of great natural wealth, the Mountain range of the Albera, in the region of the Alt Empordà. To little distance is the top of the Puig Neulós that with its 1257 meters, is the Highest point of the zone and offers impressive views of the plain of the Rosellón, the Canigó, and the Alt Empordà.

From Cantallops must to continue by track forest in enough good state to crossroad which they lead to the castle (way of the right that happens over the Torrent de Coll Pregón) or to the neighborhood of Requesens (straight), we can leave the car here.
