  • It is located on a hill and there is a short walk. The entrance is by a dirt road that goes to the left. It seems that dates back to the X or XII centuries. Destroyed in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in the 15th. The patio is so large that it is divided by an inner wall. Visit a water tank, a small, but small exhibition and a weapons room. It is otherwise completely empty apart from an "ethnographic museum" homespun. The wall can be bypassed.

  • A medieval castle, located in a municipality of Medellin in the Extremadura region of "Vegas Altas". Belonging to the judicial party of Don Benito. Town of birth of Hernán Cortés. The castle is not in a good state, which with the deterioration over time to past Nick. At the foot of the castle is discovered a Roman theater, which since 2007, is still working on the to continue excavations. From the Castle you can see much high vegas area, the river Guadiana and different rivers flowing, you can also see the bridge of the Seventeenth century, with 20 eyes and temples on the Guadiana river.

  • If you go to Medellin, after visiting the Roman Theatre, it is almost forced to go up to the Castle, it has a very nice environment and the Guadiana river with beautiful views to the side. Inside it is not that much, have a couple of tanks that you can visit, the Tower of homage with good views of the surroundings and traverse its walls.

  • Tip of the iceberg of the important archaeological site that exists on this hill. In addition to the Castle, you can visit the extraordinary Roman Theatre, at the foot of the Castle.

  • Impressive fortress, of Arab origin. They rebuilt the Roman fortification built on the top of the Hill. Subsequently he had extensive activity in medieval times, during the Reconquista.
