Castle Of Loarre, Aragon

4.7
Described by UNESCO as "undoubtably the best castle in all of Aragon," Castle Of 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."

  • One of the most beautiful and inspiring castles I have seen in Spain. Out of a movie set. Worth the trip to go and visit, specially with a guide to unlock all the secrets and the full history. Don’t miss it.
  • Most wonderful castle i have ever been to. Make sure you visit very early! It is even more beautiful with less people inside.
  • Definitely one of the finest medieval castles, as ever stategically placed to command a fine view to the south. One of a long chain of castles along the southern edge of the Pyrenees, possibly the best one still extant. A 'must visit ' , for sure!
  • One of the most beautiful castles in the area. It is a wonderful representation of Spanish history and how castles were changed slowly over time as different groups were in power.
  • An extremely well preserved castle, but make sure you pay the €1.50 for the audio guide as it makes a huge difference to the visit.
