The most beautiful medieval castles of Spain

Version française

Few people outside Spain seem to know it, but Spain possess one of Europe's most amazing array of medieval castles, many of which survived in very good condition thanks to the dry climate and the absence of wars on Spanish soil following the Reconquista. Castile & Leon, which was for centuries the boundary with Islamic Iberia, has the highest density of medieval castles. Here is a selection of the handsomest Spanish castles.
