  • It has not much to see. But if we think that it is the only Castle preserved in the city of Madrid. You always have to know new places. And so know better our city.

  • The castle of the 15th century and later rural Renaissance palace, excavated and reconstructed partially from the archaeological campaigns since 1996. Found remains which do not exhibit by budgetary constraints. Guided tour explains very well the history of this castle, its owners and the evolution of the way of life in the building until its abandonment and looting. Schedules of visits, individual (weekends and holidays) and group (Friday) are limited, so you have to report on the website of the city of Madrid. I recommend the visit and buy the little book on the castle which sold at the entrance (1 euro); too bad its typography, small and little readable.

  • A happy, very well preserved Castle despite its age. Better go with single friends and go better in own car.

  • Great place to visit!
  • I applaud the recovery of this castle. For years it was abandoned and now it looks great. It is still a set of ruins that depend heavily on the imagination of the visitor, but having known him before and now see it is a joy.

  • Interesting place, but mostly interesting for being the only palacio-castillo that exist within the city of Madrid. A few years ago began a rehabilitation and reconstruction that stopped, and has has today's date so that they resume. It has enough interest the re-enactment that takes place of the assault on the castle during the events of May 2.

  • The castle is very well restored, is small and in 40 minutes you end up seeing, admission is free and the staff is nice. The explanatory panels information is very interesting and entertaining and is also in braille (the whole is quite accessible). Totally worth going.

  • Interesting recovery of the only medieval castle of Madrid. After many years abandoned and vandalizado, it has a decent treatment. If we add the El Capricho Park and the Bunker of the Guerra Civil, it creates a nice set to visit

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
