We decided to check out this castle to break up our drive from Cordoba to Sevilla. The castle sits a top a stunning hill and can be seen from miles away. It is absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. We visited on sort of a dreary day and it was quite windy, but we just bundled up and had fun climbing the... More

Beautifully maintained and restored round castle of Almodovar del Rio stands tall and majestic and can be spotted from a distance. You can easily drive your car up to the castle parking lot if you like but the walk up to the castle is what is simply beautiful. As you walk along the winding path you can take the scenic... More

We took a detour on our way to Córdoba and were very pleasantly surprised. The striking castle can be seen for several kilometres as you approach the town. As we visited in January we more or less had the place to ourselves, even managing to get parking right next to the entrance (would not have fancied to long walk up... More

A dream if you are into medieval things. We saw it while on our way to Córdoba and made a right turn. Drove all the way up to the entrance and were embraced by history. For a mere €7,- you step into a time machine into history. One of the best on my list!!

We have seen seen many castles in Spain but one like this with its full history in film is fantastic. We enjoyed it very much. The view around the castle is stunning as well.

Marvelously located castle on a steep hill offers spectacular views over the area, the visit guides along the walls and towers - reserve 2 hours for the visit. Highly recommended!

We have visited this castle several times over the years and loved it each time. One day we want to be in the medieval meal that they serve. A fun visit and you feel like you are not a typical tourist in Spain.

After the tourist traps of Cordoba, with its queues to visit the sites, this is a wonderful change, a lovely peaceful place, stunning views and a well kept and presented castle. A fascinating story surrounds the castle and it is well worth the entry fee. My 8 year old son had a great time, and was fascinated by all the... More
