  • Madrigal de las Altas Torres is first and foremost the town of birth of Queen Isabel the Catholic, and just born in the Palace of Juan II. My girlfriend has been fascinated by the history of this great woman, which has been rediscovered (and me with it) through the "Isabel la Católica" television series. The series - and its protagonist - already part of us... And... what best proposal that visit the place where was it born? The Palace is today home to a convent of Augustinian nuns, that they got there own King Fernando el Católico hand wet. Doesn't show much of the convent, but it should not be forgotten that we are in closing... We are in a convent, but the Palace, civil building, shows us inside: the great Hall where took place the courts of Castile, with its impressive tables of time... but all leads us to the sancta santorum of the place, the apartments which was born the Queen, an antechamber and, finally, as wanting to save the best for the end, own stay in which it was born. Surely it has changed since then, and much, but an inhabitant of the era would not feel strange: his soil is the original, barro cocido., the roof of a strong and ancient wood... narrow it to us arising, the door is intended for people of different stature... It is a place that moves... and excited... The guide was an Augustinian nun of Colombian, young origin. Some visitors criticized their terse and devoid of details explanation, but let's not forget that it is foreign, but the convent is home, and made a major effort to bring us a our history, which is strange to her. Not should feel saddened and ashamed that they have to teach others our history?

  • Today we visited the Palace of Juan II of Castile, present our Lady of grace monastery run by Augustinian nuns since 1527. Place full of history as of April 22, 1451 birthplace Queen Isabel la Católica. The visits have a schema established (see photo) and must call to the ringer to be attended and start it visit completely custom in our case. The cost is € 4 adult and €2 child. Lasts an hour but our visit today, with sister María Jesus, rondo the hour and a half and in many cases seems to be arriving until 2 pm. Sister María Jesus is a nun with more than 60 years in the monastery, with great knowledge of the history, but that is at times more focused on anecdotes of previous visitors who in the history of the Palace by what the visit drags on longer than expected. Highlights: Chapterhouse: cuts of King Juan II in 1438, spectacular coffered ceiling. Ambassadors room: cuts of the RRCC in 1476, the Holy brotherhood Foundation. Royal Chapel: grave of Catherine sister of Enrique IV, Isabel of Barcelos maternal grandmother of Isabel, Queen Maria of Aragon (spouse of Juan II) and María of Aragon daughter of Fernando el Católico (prior to the marriage with Isabel) and religious at this monastery. Royal Flush: access from the cloister to the Royal quarters. Rooms real: between them the room where was born the Queen Isabel with until the soils of the time. Nowadays there reside 11 religious responsible of the survival of the Palace. The visits are very scarce and that there are are mostly of visitors foreigners attracted by the history of Isabel. Place spectacular, laden with history and with custom tour; not exploited touristically. We don't know what we have in Spain! Visited the 24 of February of 2017.
