Located 30 kilometres from Guadalajara, Hita is known for its Medieval Theatre Festival and for the illustrious Archpriest of Hita, author of one of the main works of Spanish literature, “The Book of Good Love”. Its historic quarter has been declared a Property of Cultural Interest.
In 1441, the Marquis of Santillana decided to fortify the town, building a wall and rebuilding the old castle, located on the top of a hill. A section of the outer enclosure and part of the castle's Keep have been preserved from this defensive structure, as well as some sections of the wall and the Saint Mary's Gate, a beautiful example of Gothic military architecture.
