Castillo de Loarre, Aragon
(4.7/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Precious experience to stroll through its interiors and learn its history. We had a wonderful guide who was explaining his secrets, we accompany a day of fog that gave him the perfect touch.

  • Located a few kilometers from Huesca, and in a spectacular landscape. Don't vsitarlo. In the have been shot several films, the last one entitled the Kingdom of heaven. In the surroundings, you can enjoy horseback riding, rafting, paragliding... Without forgetting gastronomy.

  • It is not a full Castle, but is quite well preserved, is very nice to walk through the different rooms and imagine how it would have been at the time of the reconquest. It is not spectacular, but I recommend it fully for lovers of castles.

  • 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
