  • On top of an outcrop, next to the town of Feria, rises its castle - a key point for defending the territory since ancient times.

    An impressive, monumental construction whose current keep and main complex that remains date back to the mid-15th century, although there have been several remodellings since.

    Outside, we find a wall that follows the irregular lay of the land and incorporates cylindrical watch towers. A wall which crosses the inside, like a boundary wall, divides the castle into two parts.

    The castle's keep stands out as an example of Gothic military architecture, with a square layout, rounded corners and impressive height.

    As you visit the four floors of the keep, the basement and the rooms of the lords and ladies of the castle, and going up to its terrace, you can enjoy some privileged views of the Tierra de Barros region.
