We wanted our son to have a castle experience and that he did. From our first view of the castle on the hill to our final departure on the road out of the small town, this excursion trip out of Madrid was fabulous. The feel of the history of the structure was very powerful. The panoramic views of the countryside were beautiful. We were there in the summer, I would like to also try a visit in the winter after the snow has fallen. The food was excellent and a good representation of the region, more earthy and heavier than the coastal Spanish regions. The travel find is located on the road between Madrid and Valencia along the La Mancha route, with lavender fields blooming in the summer along with the sun flowers.
