Remember the French play by Corneille "Le Cid" ? well , HE lived there, he fought over this castle and won it ! A stunning fortress on a hilltop with a moorish gate, eagles nesting in the old towers, An impressive castle on an out of the way plateau !

A huge Moor fortress dating from the 8th century used to maintain troops to control this territory. Access is unrestricted and unsupervised. The castle is situated on top of a solitary hill with amazing views > 10 km in every direction. The interior of the castle is mostly in ruin - but we very much enjoyed walking the imposing castle...

The remains of this castle are unsupervised, and we were the only ones there for an hour. 'Health and Safety' have not been allowed to spoil the enjoyment of this castle and for sheer size and situation you should visit. There are extensive views for miles.

We couldn't find this on the map so just headed for Gormaz - we shouldn't have worried as you can't miss it. It's well worth the detour though as it's a very imposing castle on top of the hill with some fabulous views.

We could see the castle from far away as we drove toward it...just impressive. Once there, it was great walking around and taking photos of the castle and the landscape beyond. Can't miss this if you're in Soria!

The castle sits on top of its own hill which it encirles. It offers amazing & I don't exagerate they are truely amazing views. By the river below is a very old bridge over the Duero and in the village is an acient church with wonderful wall piantings.

You can see Gormaz from a long way away, and it looks just stunning as you approach, covering the full length of the mountain top. It's free to get in, some basic signage inside, but it is essentially a ruin, open to the elements. And it is huge. The end with the more built up area is great fun, it's... More

Easy to find, breath taking views, and the best no fee to see it! I am hopeful in the future they add english translations to their description plaques. We took pictures and translated the spanish when we got home. Definitely a must see if you are in the area

This enormous castle can be seen from far away. It is recommended to visit it at ease and savour the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Do not forget to visit the little church that you pas at your right hand driving up to the castle, it has some very interesting frescoes.
