  • Stunning and unexpected. Amazing mix of history from knights templar to the decision to execute Innes de Castro to ancient family politics and Moorish conquests. Walk the ramparts, tread on 14th century graves, marvel at the military architectural innovations from waaaaay back in the day.
  • Cool place, and free! A visit here shouldn't take more than 30-45 minutes.
  • Awesome. The best place for a little picnic with girlfriend
  • A great place to visit and see an historical Castle with a panoramic view of the countryside.
