Castle was nicely renovated and interesting, but it took 1,5 hours to get in as there were so many people in there.

This was the residential palace of Duke of Santillana, the Mendoza family. It is equipped with military features, paintings, tapestries... I really love the visit!! The castle is well maintained. It is a palace within a castle.

The views are lovely. It's easily accessible from the town. You can take 2 buses or a direct one if it runs during your scheduled time to do. Buses run from the tube station closed to the Madrid towers photo below The staff is very lovely and friendly To enter inside the ticket costs 5 euros Very beautiful views The lake is stunning

The castle is located in the small town of Manzanares el Real which is about a 45-minute bus journey outside Madrid. We came across the castle a few years ago by visiting an old family friend who lives in the town. The day we visited the castle it was very quiet on a Saturday arriving just after lunch and we spent around 4 hours in castle. I’m sure if visitors to Madrid were aware of the castle it would be a lot busier but maybe that is a good thing as we didn’t experience the crowds like we did while visiting some of the well-known tourist attractions and was a little cooler than Madrid with a nice breeze. The castle is on about 4 or 5 levels with several state rooms and balconies on each level overlooking the castle courtyard. Once at the top we had excellent views over the Reservoir of Manzanares el Real from the one side and views of the mountains and town on the other sides.
