Over the ages, Spain was always a turbulent place. Wars between the Moors and the Christians, territorial unifications and divisions, a rapid turnover of rulers – these are all reasons why Spain has so many spectacular medieval castles. So if you’ve already tried the Spanish cuisine and had enough of sunbathing, swimming in the sea and lying on the beach, it’s time to visit some fantastic castles. Most of them are located in the regions of Castille and León, and Andalusia.
