  • the fortress is located in the upper part of the fortified town of Moclin, in the province of Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. It is dated in the Nasrid period, 14th century, although some elements are earlier. Description edit the castle is part of the grounds of the fortified town itself. This enclosure is divided, in turn, into two: the first, lowest, corresponds to the villa itself, surrounded by a wall of mud enripiada, reinforced on the corners of ashlars and crenellated masonry. The wall has a large access torre-puerta, in double bend, and in the interior of this place are buildings such as the Church of the incarnation. The second enclosure is the Castle or fortress itself, closed by a fortress which, on its southern front, is double. The first of both walls, from the outside, is also built in masonry (as the rest of the walls), but the second is rammed earth. The northern part is the one with a larger, as that faced Christian lands of Alcalá la Real, Jaén Pact after. The upper part of the enclosure, located 1,100 MSM of altitude, contains the torre del homenaje, which was originally built in mud, although then it was strengthened with masonry. The campus also has two wells, one of great size and well preserved, and a second smaller and quite destroyed. Nothing remains of rooms or homes, though he had them in his time. The defensive Castle network is complemented by a series of optical torres who controlled access to the villa-fortaleza. Currently remain standing as follows: atalaya Tower of Mingoandres, Tower watchtower of the pigsty, Atalaya de la Mesa, atalaya Tower Tower of chicken-and-La Solana. Deteriorated as a result of damage by bombing in the Spanish civil war, it has undergone a recent restoration (2012-2013) by the Junta de Andalucía.

  • Admittedly, the Castle needs a good reconstruction but the views and the environment in which it is of the same make a magnificent. The explanations of the guides is very didactic and the price which is paid by the visit (€2.50) ridiculous results with weather that lasts the same (hour and a half) and dedication that provides the Guide.
