  • Too bad that does not have a good access. Pity that it is not in the best State. Pity that it is private and with the will of the "Guide" to take a few quarters. But it's worth the penalty, and much. Inside and out, and his story is incredible. Another gem that is untapped. A monumentazo with history. The visit is of average time, only Wednesday from 10 h to 13 h and from 16 h to 18 h.

  • A way to access the amazing Castle at this place. And once at the top, frustration sets in because the Castle, private, site is closed. Priori open only on Wednesday, but I don't know how we can be sure. A pity! Then down feel free to stop by for lunch at the hostal restaurant Labella...

  • We visited the Castle, after ensuring that opens Wednesday. Us attends Antonio, explaining the history of the Castle and his own, since he was born there. Son of the caretakers of the same. It is owned privately and pending restoration, although I must point out that the coffered ceiling of the wooden roof is in good condition overall. Note the capitals of Corinthian type of great beauty.

  • 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.
