  • Is is of a complex integrated by the Castle and the convent that was the headquarters of the order of Calatrava and that served to control the step from Andalusia to the Center peninsular in the time of the Reconquista. Castle and convent in a State of conservation (reconstruction) outstanding. Located on a vantage point it has outstanding views of the surrounding territory. Visit for lovers of history and castles. After a visit is a must eat in the restaurant La Encomienda, located a few kilometers from the monument.

  • The resort is quite well preserved, especially the noble part and the Church. The access can be improved, since the way up was stoned. I think it has enough potential to improve its offer and to increase the surface reconstructed and preserved. The stunning views and the cost of access is reasonable for the visit. The worst are the stairs, but there are plenty of areas to stop and admire the grandeur of the set

  • Epic visit to this castle and one of the best of our 1,100 mile Spanish road trip. Liked the dramatic music they played as you entered which added to the atmosphere. Slightly more printed information than elsewhere. Amazing views and the drive their was fun.
  • Beautiful and well kept. Visit mandatory manchega

  • Must-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.
