    Argamasilla de alba (birthplace of Don Quixote), address Ruidera leaving we find this magnificent Castle overlooking the Marsh. The entrance to the castle is free and it is very well preserved, has a little shop where they sell soft drinks, ice creams etc etc. I recommend his visit and its views.

    Returning from the lagoons of Ruidera we find this beautiful castle. I was surprised because, although tiny, outside is pretty well preserved. It is perched on a rock next to the dam of Peñarroya (Guadiana river). The blue waters of the reservoir contrast with the Brown of the stone from the Castle, resulting in a charming corner. We will not hesitate to make a stopover on the way to visit this place (about 20-30 minutes) a bit of history: according to the legend when in the 12th century took the castle to the Muslims, met with an image of our Lady of Peñarroya, which still venerate in the village.

  • beautiful castle with spectacular views over the dam of Peñarroya. All around are pure field, highly recommended for hiking or bike rides. The information centre includes an exhibition on the history of la Mancha, with references to Don Quixote and geographic peculiarities. There is also a shop with products "gourmet" of La Mancha. You can take something type sandwich, potato, beverage and coffee.
