  • If only, this first Renaissance civil building of Spain, is a marvel but abroad appears one Castle more, its interior is wonderful, its courtyard and its columns that make up the four points of the ring is a resolution unique architecture, existing alone, before, in buildings of Genoa. Something to be discovered and cannot be described

  • The visits are always on WEDNESDAYS from 10 h to 13 h and from 16 h to 18 h. There was no any official guide, just a helpful old man making us guide and we told all about Castle, place and history... went it very well, a special place full of history. This deteriorated (the last in live there, the let think that in 1910)... weigh your years, hopefully they can restore it, because on the inside is very nice and large, with beautiful wooden ceilings of 500 years ago, the pillars with signatures from people who were there with interesting dates 1860, 1914... and their signatures. In short, worthy view form part of our history... the only bad thing... is rising and access to the Castle, or leaves with a suitable car high or bumps that make it pupa and two car lanes if they are scared. You can climb on foot also from the town.

  • Beautiful views and an enthusiastic (Spanish) guide, who was born in the castle. Fortunately we had an excellent translator in our midst, otherwise we would have understand nothing of his explanation...
  • I didn't get to look inside this Castle but it looks pretty impressive from the outside.
  • The calahorra is beautiful castles worth a quick visit on Wednesdays you can visit even inside where you will find a beautiful Renaissance architecture italiana.il Mr. Antonino is a perfect guide

  • Excellent construction. Too bad that is closed and not can be admired in its entirety. There is a path suitable for 4 x 4, but can be accessed from the village, but eye, there are steep slopes when the people left, another nuance is that the road is staggered. Apart from the Castle, you also have fantastic views of the village and the Valley.
