Wonderful Views
5/2017 • Kaverit
Worth the walk, and the climbing, to get beautiful views and great photo ops. After you finish here, it's just a short walk to the hilltop cafes, where you can get drinks and meal, with a view, for a good price.

Birth place of my Ancestors
5/2016 • Perhe
2006 November. We traveled from to Madrid, Spain, rented a car and headed to Castilla la Mancha, Spain. There we met up with the Mayor of Turrel for breakfast and headed to Villa De Moya. The site had been closed for our arrival, As we drove up the zigzag road to the main entrance. Mom, the last of the De Moya began to weep, it is not everyday you get to go back to where your family name began, she said I was just glad I could grant her that wish. The castle was in repairs when we arrived and it was now patrimonio nacional. I asked or host what the cost to repair it would be and if I could fund it. She said it was 750,000 Euros and no becuase it now belonged to ANESCO but we could visit as often as we licked, I suggested a Renaissance Fair, but she informed me that they have events there all the time. Well it looks Like repairs are going good so I will visit in 2018 see what they have done with the place.

Amazing hilltop castle above village with only two residents
9/2015 • Kaverit
This castle is perched above the village of Moyà in the region of Cuenca. Having seen it from afar we had to pay a visit. Simply amazing and not only was the castle deserted but there are only two old men left living in the village. The castle itself is huge and accessed up a steep road above the village. There is no entry fee and within the walls are a church and town hall and not often used conference facilities. There are a couple of rows of streets of ruined houses which were abandoned only in the 1950's and the odd vulture to keep you company.. If you are ever in this part of Spain it is certainly worth a visit.
