  • It is shameful, but I recognise that we had no knowledge of the existence of this fortified, the only Castle in the city. We discovered preparing for a Sunday visit to the Parque El Capricho, and the search for references to it appeared. We decided to go if he gave us time, and no more hope that see a few stones of what should be a small castle. But nothing more remote from the reality. Although in its most is a reconstruction of what should be a nice Castle, it history that houses even of before its construction initial (is have found remains of a village of the age of copper) it make only in the city of Madrid. The visit is made through a tour around that ends up crossing the moat by a bridge that makes that you located in the heart of the Castle, all complete with vantage points in points strategic which are explaining in detail the history of its construction. The person that we received at the entrance to a ten.

  • The remains of the Château de la Alameda (Castillo de la Alameda) is located in the Alameda area in Madrid. It was built in the 15th century at the behest of the powerful Mendoza family on the outskirts of the former village of la Alameda. Around the fortress and manor was subsequently created the District of Barajas. Castle of La Alameda small in size. Its inner area is approximately 200 m2. meters.

  • It is very picturesque and every step until the input is to enjoy. It is located in the historic district of the city and its steep alleys lead you almost without darte account, although with some effort. We were told that we should take care with the arrebatadores but we did not have any problem. It is very picturesque and very busy. There is the option to upload by tram or carts bicycles with driver.
