MAGNIFICENT
5/2019 • Pariskunnat
This is an easily accessible castle and you can park right outside of it. It is huge and surrounded by a moat. The downside is, as with many castles, it is under renovation and you can't go in. Still, the outside is most impressive and well worth a visit.

Astonished Castle
6/2017
I planned my travel to Albacete and i saw the pictures of this amazing castle. I checked that it is not far from Albacete where we spend the night. We visited in the morning followed the marks to the castle. We parked the car and climbed towards the castle passing a road with caves houses with flowers and burds in the cage. The castle is astonish. The views from the top is marvelous. Don'T miss it.

Stands high
9/2016 • Pariskunnat
Stands high on the hill and can be seen for miles before you get there, unfortunately we couldn't get in after driving up the gravel road to the castle.
The castle in its commanding position with its dry defensive moat.

Views of the plains
9/2016 • Kaverit
You get a lovely view up on the top of the surrounding plains and mountains.

The castle has just been 'renovated', but unfortunately it wasn't open when we got there.

It was still nice to walk around it though. It is encircled by a very deep moat and there is a bridge crosses it to the main 'door'. I'm a bit weary of heights so that was a bit of a strange feeling.

Beautiful town and interesting castle

Just off the highway we found a gorgeous little town, we were only stopping quickly to look at the castle but the walk to and around castle was lovely and the we stopped in plaza de mayor for tapas lunch, which was magnificent. Wonderful addition to out trip.

Worth the walk
10/2015 • Soolomatka
The castle sits on top of the hill on which Chinchilla is built and the stunning views are well worth the trip.
I went up twice during my stay and was fascinated by the cave houses and the amazing architecture.
Well worth seeing.

Great views
9/2015
Been to this castle twice this year and had a great day trekking up the streets and hill sides surround this castle. The views from the top extend out as far as the eye can see. Very breathe taking. Sadly, I was not able to get inside as only the outside of it is maintained but this is definitely a good hike and castle climb day with great views.

Sometimes it pays to pull off the road to look around
7/2015
Saw it on the hill ahead off of the expressway and stopped, expecting that it might be like so many of the other restored castles that we've seen.

Not... No, this is a unique experience to see an unrestored castle that also saw significant damage during the Civil War.

It's one of the more impressive sights, up close, especially considering the moat around it (remember, up on a hill) that begs the imagination to consider how this must have been built, first, and looked like when it was complete in the middle ages.

Worth stopping and, when done, go down to the main square of the village below the castle for some tapas.

A nice castle to visit
9/2014 • Pariskunnat
Like some other castles in smalls towns, I have no idea if, or when, this castle is open. The town is small so it isn´t difficult to wind your way up the hill to the castle. Although it was open, it was worth a 20 minute stop just to walk around the outside.
