Castilnovo Castle

Short History

Probably built by Abderraman I, this Moorish castle was altered on the 14th and 16th centuries and later in the 19th and 20th centuries.

It has a square plan with six towers and it is a fine example of Spanish moorish architecture.

The Castilnovo Castle hosted the Catholic kings and was later the prison for the sons of Francis I, the French king after being captured by the Spanish at the battle of Pavia in 1525. In the 19th century, it was the property of the Hohenzollern family.
