It is around 12 kilometres from Toledo and contains an important palace-fortress from the 15th century, which has been perfectly restored and furnished in an attempt to recreate the original period decoration.
Built on the site of a previous Arab castle, it was used as lodgings by, among others, Felipe el Hermoso and Juana la Loca, Cardinal Cisneros and the emperor Carlos. The main section is square, with circular towers on three corners, the rectangular keep on the remaining corner and triangular towers in the centre of the walls. The fortress is surrounded by a moat which follows the shape of the exterior walls. Also recommended is a visit to the hermitage of San Antón, nowadays the Museum of Popular Customs and Art of the Toledo Mountains; the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de la Natividad, and the parish church.
