A beautiful castle relatively un-visited in a wonderful town. There are tours most days, some in English, stop by the tourism office during the day near the main square.

This is an amazing castle. The tours are free and they are given on the hour at 11:00, 12:00, 1:00 and twice more after siesta. Each tour lasts for about 50 minutes. The tour is given in Spanish by a very knowlegable person. You get...More
