  • A people evicted in the 1960s who is currently empty, although some of the homes are rehabilitating. It has schedule visits party, needless to go with reserve. For walking calmly around the streets, entering the houses that are open (many without roof), climb the Tower of the Castle... The road has a couple of kilometers with very bad paved (almost track), but going slowly there is no problem. Look at the schedule, at midday closing. It is best to check before you go.

  • It seems that it was founded by the Muslims in the 9TH century, hence its name, and is an ancient villa walled, evicted in the middle of the 20TH century to become flooded area. Currently is a village in rehabilitation, they have managed to leave in great State Tower, the plaza mayor, any street and continue to make progress. He is surprised with the peace and tranquility of the place. Near Zarza de Granadilla, the first stretch of asphalt scare a pco, by its evil been, but passed this stretch the rest, defined as a road, it is a super highway. To us we loved, as the majority of places little known that you surprised. It is visited by schools, to teach an ancient way of life.

  • Granadilla is almost a must-see if you are in the area. People "abandoned" say, but there is that being more environmentally friendly with its history. Town expropriated in 1955 to carry out the work of a swamp. Effectively, the people who lived it is their houses and streets not seen to jeopardize them by the arrival of the water, but if they lose all lands that are used to work with them, so you are forced to leave everything ("all" is your life, past, present and future in their land), to seek sustenance away from "its roots", and that the Lord than more swamps had built and opened in the world You sumase one to your list. Work wonderful they are doing for their restoration. Slow, very slow and laborious, but relentlessly.

  • Well worth the side trip. The small village was abandoned but its old walls, main square and other areas still look. And, the views from the top on the lake are very pretty.
  • One of the best castles I've explored-- it really gives a good idea of what it was like. Check out the original iron grating in the windows. And the old toilets made of stone!
  • Granadilla is a beautiful town walled in rehabilitation process. It is worth to visit it, see the wall, the plaza mayor and upload to your Castle, overlooking the village and the Gabriel y Galán reservoir. Just before entering the village there is a free parking, so you can park without problems. It must take into account that the people is not always open, Monday closed and during the year has this time:-from April to October: 10:00 to 13:20 and 16:00 to 20:00. -From November to March: 10:00 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 18:00.

  • Beautiful medieval village in a spectacular setting. There is a stretch of the road impassable, I do not understand how you can have that stretch in a village so visited tourist destinations.
