  • They say the caliphal fortaleza de Gormaz is the largest in Spain, it had 28 towers and one kilometre and peak of walls, which gives us an idea of the great importance he had for everybody. On a hill dominating all access to the Douro River and the North and became a decisive point for the cordoban caligas. It was conquered and reconquered by Christians and Muslims given the strategic importance of it. Díaz Rodrigo de Vivar was warden of the same. Two visits I have made to this fortress I prefer the caliphal gateway to the same, beautiful. The importance of this fortress is the set, the framework, in which seat, given that the interior is completely empty, with areas of archaeological excavation. However, your visit well worth

  • We left the Burgo de Osma towards Gormaz and although one doesn't know where this fortress is it is impossible to go unnoticed the walled Hill and the ruins of the Alcázar. Without doubt it is a walk through the history of Spain, land of border between Al - Andalus and Castilla-Pamplona. We were lucky to walk the place alone and marvel at the view. There is no doubt that Almanzor here had a good basis to organize their aceifas and the defence of the Caliphate. Just as information say that you it's a visit to a site, so it lacks, time, tickets and services that a tourist can expect. The entrance, is therefore free.

  • When one approaches, striking the Hill on which was built the fortress, but when you go up and admired the views from it, he realizes the unbeatable location, with a full view of all the surroundings from several km radius. It is a pity that not have restored a bit more... has so much history...

  • A rare opportunity to see unspoiled history. A photo can not describe this place. Go there.
  • Amazing place! It's fantastic to find such an old Muslim fortress still in good condition.
  • Expectacular
  • This Castle is well of the beaten path and you will have to have a rental car to get to but it is well worth the drive. There is not a tour guide or any information so you are on your own to explore as you will.
  • Very large Castle and demolished. The view is very xula from the Castle.
