Lovely presence when viewed from afar and better from car park. Unfortunately it doesn't open until 11am and this did not agree with our travel arrangements.

This was a sight for sore eyes. Even our youngest kids (5 and 7) found this place breathtaking. Scenery and view, telling the stories of history. If you are in the area, well worth to spend and hour or two!

A great castle, beautifully restored, with a commanding view of the environment. Unexpectedly we got a free entrance (because it was Wednesday afternoon..?), and had a leisurely look around.

This is more a romantic, victorian folly than real medieval castle. It was extensively renovated in Edwardian times and now has a Disney World type feeling. It's very pretty though, and makes a nice break on the road from Cordoba to Seville.

We weren't aware of the castle until it appeared looking like something out of a medieval-times movie. It has a great location and young would-be knights will have a great time climbing all over the battlements, but this is not a restored castle. As the...More

Thanks. We are focusing to enjoy kids in the visits, because a bored kid could be really annoying. Anyway, We try to give a cultural vision when we avoid the problem of children

This was the second time I've visited this castle which lies between Seville and Córdoba on the 431. It's an impressive renovation of a once ruined castle that looks magnificent as you approach from the road. It sits on an isolated hill dominating the landscape....More

Very pretty castle. It's possible to arrive with the car to the very castle, there is a parking for approx. 10 cars. The place is especially cool for children as they can climb many towers and see the dungeon. There are few rooms that offer...More
