Loved it, raw and unspoilt!

We made sure to drive there on our way to Sevilla. Almost in a middle of field and not where you would expect to see a castle. We were there on our own which is our type of sightseeing. As previously mentioned a torch/flashlight will be needed to safely climb some stairs.

Great to explore
1/2019 • Perhe
It’s simple and undeveloped - wonderful to explore. We dropped in for an hour with a bus load of other tourists. All had a ball! As other visitors here have said, need to be very careful when climbing up but the views (and castle itself) are great to see.

Great Ruined Castle
11/2018 • Kaverit
This is a great ruined castle near Seville on the way to Ronda. It is small but was a lot fun to clamber around. You have to be careful when you are climbing around the ruined towers since there aren't too many rails. You might want to bring a flashlight for the first part of the climb up the central tower. You can also climb up the chimney at the top of the central tower to get an even higher view. There are some stones sticking out on the inside of the chimney you can use to get to the very top. All in all it is a very nice stop and no one else was there when we stopped on a Saturday in mid-November.

Fun but be careful, no guardrails here!
10/2018 • Perhe
Great Moorish castle ruins! FUN for the adventurous and able bodied.

Bring a flashlight as even in the daytime to get to the top you have to go up dark uneven stone steps.

Has a nice sign in both English and Spanish at the front with the history.

Limited parking and no services (restroom or water) but also FREE

Beware: no guardrails, no handrails, uneven stone surfaces and stairs, a hole in the middle of the second floor big enough to fall thru or get stuck in, lose stones and gravel on all levels, and harder to come down than go up.

With that said, we took my 74 year old mother here (she is fit and able bodied with some arthritis and a bad shoulder). She climbed to top (not afraid of heights) and came down with help and a flashlight.

We had a great time spending about an hour here.

Castle ruins
11/2017 • Kaverit
This is the real deal - no admission charge, no guides, no guard rails, no rules, no tourists, just the castle ruins with a good view of the landscape around from the top of the tower. The castle was built near a riverbed to defend a spring, a precious resource of earlier times.

Interesting diversion off highway
3/2017 • Perhe
We saw this just off the highway East of Seville. Only a sign identifying it at the side of the highway was present - no "plaque or information. The gate is open, with no attendant. Our grandchildren loved it because you can climb all around, with no restrictions. There are also almost no guard rails. Only the bare bones remain (although they are intact and stable) so that there is no sense of being overly reconstructed. We really enjoyed it as a short diversion.

Location on the map here is wrong!
10/2016 • Pariskunnat
We went there on weekend, because we were near. We were following location from tripadvisor, but it was wrong. I asked a local how to get there:
From that point you have to take a road down and then to the right under the bridge, take left and right again, about 2-3km from nearest town.

Interesting castle
5/2016 • Perhe
It was not a castle that we imagined (based on hollywood movies) but more like a fortress. The guide told us that it was built to defend a water source and hence its location at a low terrain (as oppose to the standard ones). Found the narrow windows interesting. Not for viewing the landscape but for achers to shoot and not get shot. Climbed to watch tower that apparently was built to check if other castles were sending messages (by liting fire).

Just how you'd imagine a 'real' castle to look!
6/2015 • Pariskunnat
A very imposing castle and from a distance, almost looks like a childs drawing of how a castle should be! We approached the castle through fields of sunflowers and it was so beautiful. Its set in a very quiet rural area, with plenty of free car parking and places to picnic. Admission is free too. Great views from the top, but the steps are uneven and the handrails don't feel safe, so take care. I have to say I didn't enjoy the walk to the top and the walk down was even worse!!!
We also had a stroll around the sleepy town of El Coronil - just few shops and bars, but it was very pleasant.

Aguzaderas Castle in El Coronil

Aguzaderas Castle in El Coronil

On Sat, Mar 1, we were in Utrera, in the Sevilla Province of Spain, about 40 Km southeast of Sevilla. We were staying with

a friend there who works at Moron Air Base nearby. Our friend took us to lunch in Montellano on the A-375 highway.
as we passed El Coronil on the left, we noticed a well preserved castle on the left, inexplicably on flat land, about 300 meters off the highway. On the return, we stopped at the Aguzaderas Castle in El Coronil. It turns out to be a Moorish castle built on flat land to control a spring there which is the source of the Aguzaderas river. The castle has a signboard in English and Spanish describing it, is always open to the public, and free. Adjacent are some houses participating in "Casa Rural" homestays. The walls are very well preserved, but none of the old buildings inside the walls have survived. You can walk around the courtyard, climb the stairs and walk the top of the walls. Most challenging is the climb to the top of the Keep, the large tower above the rest of the castle. This castle is well preserved, as most castles have been ruined, with stones removed. The castle can only be reached by car or bicycle. Too far from El Coronil, unless you are a serious hiker. There are no facilities so you have to bring your own food and water.
