Situated 30 kilometres from Guadalajara, Hita is known for its Medieval Theatre Festival and for the Archpriest of Hita, illustrious author of "The Book of Good Love", one of the main works in Spanish literature. Its old quarter has the Property of Cultural Interest designation.
In 1441, the Marquis of Santillana decided to fortify the area by erecting a wall and reconstructing the old castle, located on the top of a hill. A section of the outer wall and a portion of the castle's keep still remain from the defence structure, as well as some of the walls and the Santa María gateway, a beautiful example of gothic military architecture.
