Castillo de Loarre, Aragon
(4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Described by UNESCO as "undoubtably the best castle in all of Aragon," Castillo de Loarre held a strategic position on the frontier between Christian and Muslim lands. Built largely during the 11th and 12th centuries, the castle is very well-preserved, and underwent major restorations in the 20th century. Explore its large walls, numerous towers, and enclosed Church of San Pedro. Of its three towers, the "Tower of the Queen" is particularly noteworthy for its set of twin-arched windows, which have been attributed to Lombard and Mozarabic architectural forms. Film buffs might recognize the castle from its appearance in the 2005 epic "Kingdom of Heaven." Make Castillo de Loarre a part of your Yeste vacation plans using our Yeste vacation route planner.

  • Castle very cool and very well preserved. One of the most spectacular in Spain. We took the guided tour with the story very well told by Loreto by the way. There is a café with a fantastic terrace if it does good and possibility to eat a menu. I liked us.

  • It environment, it own fortress, the State of conservation of different stays, especially the Church, and the visit guided, super entertaining, make it visit very interesting and advisable. The concept store is improved, too touristic. I would have liked something more type interpretation Center, although the facilities are very complete and allow it. The very pleasant terrace. There are visits in the vicinity that allow complete the journey

  • Very well preserved medieval castle just a few minutes from Huesca. The Guide explained us visit made her us very entertaining and participatory. In addition weather accompanied us with what everything was perfect. The environment is wonderful and the views are impressive.

  • un castillo bonissima.
  • A castle of importance, and more recently, a castle of film stardom (Kingdom of Heaven). The visitor centre/ticket office is well designed too, as it looks to be 'underground'.
  • Amazing place, great view of the valley and an incredibly beautiful romanic church. The castle is fantastic
  • Unique location...amazing Castle nearby Huesca.
  • really cool how do you know all of this like how do you keep track of all of this
