Nice remains of a castle located in an imposing place. Easy walk from town. You may see vultures "watching".

Rock castle that defended the border of Castile with the Kingdom of Aragon. It is worth going up and seeing the views A pity that the Junta de Castilla y León does not consolidate its walls.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
