  • Natural Granadilla environment is great, surrounded by a reservoir between a huge forest of pines and eucalyptus. It has a tower that you can visit, with unbeatable views from the highest part, even canned several latrines. The wall surrounds completely all the people, from there you can see the houses and streets, beautiful ruins. Also among the ruins there are several stables with pigs, cows and sheep. The wall is passable. Access is free and also open also on Sunday afternoon, which is something to thank.

  • A village that is expropriated for the creation of the pantano de Gabriel y Galán and never became flooded. The timetable of visit is split with closing at noon and varies depending on the time of year so you have to find out previously. Castle, Tower and medieval wall having been declared a historic-artistic site. Currently coexist areas destroyed with the rehabilitated through projects with schools workshop of the villages abandoned recovery program. A visit interesting and different. Not accessible. Access road with sections in poor condition

  • 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.

  • 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.
