You can also see on an urban route the House of the Marquises of Castellfort with its coat of arms on the door, or the town hall, which is a history-filled building which has been used for different purposes.
Another place in Castellfort where you can take a great photo is its 16th century Brotherhood and its Porches, from the 17th-18th century, and you should not miss its 18th century neo-Renaissance parish church, with an interesting organ and altarpieces.
In Castellfort you can visit interesting museums, such as the Mare de Déu de la Font museum, with the remains of a Roman settlement, or the Horno museum.
