TOUR OF THE CASTLES OF GUADALAJARA
Guided tour to the castles of Guadalajara
Did you know that Guadalajara is one of the provinces of Spain that has more number of forts, towers and enclosures? And is that being in the heart of Castile could not be otherwise. In addition during the centuries XI-XII was zone border during the reconquest and that caused that these structures were raised by both Muslims and Christians who, after the years, were transformed into palatial residences.
The best examples restored are Sigüenza and Torija, but there are many others, which are not completely restored, such as Molina de Aragón, Atienza or Campillo de Dueñas, the latter protagonist in the series of Game of Thrones in The sixth season.
I propose you two options, or make in a single day the visit to the following points:
-. Castle of Sigüenza, gates and walls
-. Palazuelos walled enclosure
-. Panoramic view of the castle of Jadraque
-. Gate of Santa Maria de Hita
-. Castle of Torija
Or a route of several days by these Castilian lands, visiting other fortresses like the one of Atienza, Brihuega, Cifuentes or Molina of Aragón.
