  • A place that is worth a visit. We went with few expectations and we have brought us a great impression of the place. His recovery has been dramatic. The unbeatable views and explanation of the audio guide very complete but without getting bored. Highly recommended!

  • Great. Really enjoyed the hilltop. You can also then drive though town to the hills opposite for a view back.
  • La Mota is like the Alhambra without the crowds. After years of work and millions of euros of investment La Foraleza de la Mota is the proudest landmark of Alcala. It has looked after the town for centuries, and will continue to do so for many more.
  • The best time to see it is probably in the morning or before the sunset. We were happy to see the village from the fortress while everything was still in mist :)
  • Beautiful, interesting, well preserved/restored and cheap (6€). Expect a 2 to 3h visit. Great place!
  • Very well-preserved castle, it's bigger than it seems (3-4 hours/visit).
