In the Esplanade prelude to the Castle-fortress, found remains of the bronze age and a Visigoth village. The fortress is situated on top of a hill in the form of cone 936 m of altitude, with a dense indigenous vegetation on the slopes and at the base surrounded by large pedrizas. You can climb by car. Today existing paved road was made for the visit of Felipe II to the fortress in 1560 and leads to the base of the Castle. Its location controls a natural step towards Sierra Morena. Not is known with accuracy the year initial of its construction, even though there are references of its use by Nuno of Lara in 1187 as old Castle of Dueñas. You can hire a guide or do for free visit. Very well preserved. Splendid views.show original
Jorge CabañeroMust-see I recommend complete with the Calatrava la Vieja and Alarcos. Upstairs there is a large parking lot, I say this because we saw people who let the car down and went to walk and is beaten. The guide is very nice and attentive with children, that engages and keeps them entertained. In addition enriches the visit with much information of context, explanations and anecdotes that if you're going for free I perderiais.show original

Alex PascualMedieval fortress of one of the key commands in the history of Spain. Very well preserved, it includes Castle, Church and shops, among other buildings. You can climb by car up to above, what makes it easy if you do visit with elderly people or children.show original
