  • The castle is very nice, and is well restored. The video you put in the Abbey is worth see it, since it explains the existence of the Church within the amurrallado enclosure. You can climb to the top of the Torre del Homenaje (narrow and steep stairs). The autoguias could explain a little more of the story. The auto guide is included in the price of the ticket

  • A site very well conserved recommended guided it to go annealing everything that hides! The penalty that or this adapted for people with disabilities! Impressive Abbey! There is a documentary that lasts 20 minutes giving you an overview of the place! It is worth

  • An incredible strength, is very interesting and is very well preserved. The view towards Alcalá are precious from the different towers. Go early for that time to everything and to have audio guides since they end up fast. Totally recommended

  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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 :)
  • Incredible views from the village and the people! A castle rebuilt by locals, which gives it an added value i credible! Do not miss it! 😀😀
