I'm a big fan of castles, this one has many secrets inside and so many rooms to visit full of tapestries and interesting things. Go there in summer if you can handle heat, almost no tourists in sight (I saw two people the entire time)...More
This castle is located just about 1 hour away from Madrid. The drive here is beautiful! The lake and mountains nearby makes it such a relaxing place. The palace itself is not very big, unlike the one in Segovia or Ponferrada.
The day we came,...More
This castle is charming and also renovating, big and not overwhelming so you can get through in a comfortable 90 minutes and get going around with your sightseeing. Many good corners to enjoy a bit of ambience of history and nice that you can get...More
Unfortunately it was closed for the day, I got there too late, I could only take a few pictures on the exterior. I went to Aranjuez, El Escorial, San Ildefonso and Segovia, all in one day and had to leave this one for the last....More
A restoration project which is more amazing with each visit, walk through with self guide and look over the walls to the town near by or gaze up to the Sierra which is a National Park to the north or South to the lake, not...More
The castle in our village is well worth a visit, nicely restored with great views of the reservoir. One thing,to go up and down and see the whole thing you have some very tight spiral staircases. Check their website too as they have events.
If you are in Madrid, it's a must!
It's only one hour from downtown. If you have time, I suggest to visit all Guadarrama area (Manzanares, Pedriza, Navacerrada, Rascafría).
If you have only one day, visit Segovia, but stop here for a brunch for a...More
Found this gem on the way to hiking at the National Park nearby. Wonderful tour for only €5. My friend and I spent over an hour on the grounds marveling at the 15th Century architecture. One of the few castles I've been to that allow...More
Attractively restored castle with a fascinating history. We went on a very good guided tour (in Spanish) which covering the history, the outer walls and a part of the interior with its ruined church which you can only see as part of a group.
We enjoyed the guided visit. It had a number of historical references and was very well performed by two actors that alleged to be living there.
We were lucky and attended a middle ages fight in the gardens of the castle

Early June is good time to visit Spain and castles, as children are at school and there are not so many local tourists around. Some of these castles at locations that are small cities in Spain should not get too crowded in June, especially week days, and I don’t think it is necessary to book in advance. Regarding timing, it is realistic to travel through these cities and visit castles that are located nearby, say up to 2 hrs drive from base, which is the case for most of the castles mentioned. However it is best to always check in google maps for distances between base and Castle and plan a bit, .... Spain is a large country. I don’t think you need to book guides in advance for the castle themselves,... most of them (not all) would provide an audio guide and that is all you need.
