Castle of Almodóvar

Located east of Cordova in Andalucia, Spain, sitting atop a large hill called the Cerro de la Floresta. Almodovar Castle was originally built around 760 by the Moors. In 1240, Saint Fernando III took the castle after a long drawn out siege, and improvements were made by his Christian successors.

Almodovar Castle was used as a prison by several of its rulers, including Pedro I and Enrique II of Castille. Almodovar Castle was in a great position for defense and protection of its resident kings, and defenses were added throughout its history. In the 15th century, use as a stronghold became less necessary with the region becoming largely Christian, and the majestic castle was left to decay.

In 1902, a 36 year restoration project was undertaken by the Count of Torralva, Rafael Desmaisieres. Because of his vision, Almodovar Castle is one of the best preserved castles in Spain.

A visit to the castle will delight the patron with displays of castle life in ancient Spain. One can also tour the mysterious underground dungeons and passages.
