Discovering inland Spain
Come and recreate history in the inland regions of Spain by visiting its numerous castles and fortresses. This is an ideal way of learning more about the country's historical and artistic heritage while you explore the sites of battles, and imagine the life of a knight errant or a princess at the height of the Middle Ages. Come in and discover the monuments which are open to visitors, and enjoy the dramatised tours available at some of the sites for an extra special experience.
How about a journey into the past, to the time of knights errant? In Aragon you can experience that sensation by visiting its castles and fortresses.
Simply by driving along the roads throughout the region you'll be able to enjoy attractive landscapes in small towns and villages which are home to these 'skyscrapers of history'. This is the case of places such as Uncastillo , Sos del Rey Católico and Loarre , whose fortresses are open to visitors. Other ideas include the fortified city of Jaca , a perfect pentagon whose unusual layout can clearly be seen from the air, and the Aljafería Palace in Zaragoza , whose façade conceals the imposing Arab presence that can be seen inside.
We recommend choosing two nearby places with castles and making a day-long visit to explore the entire historic mediaeval quarter of the town.
On the website of the Aragon Tourist Board you can download a free PDF guide to the castles in the region.
