  • Great. Really enjoyed the hilltop. You can also then drive though town to the hills opposite for a view back.
  • 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 :)
  • 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.
  • Very well-preserved castle, it's bigger than it seems (3-4 hours/visit).
  • Beautiful, interesting, well preserved/restored and cheap (6€). Expect a 2 to 3h visit. Great place!
