“Sadly STILL closed to visitors”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We walked quite a way in the hope of seeing this castle, only to find it closed.
You can't even see much from the outside, because so much is boarded up. A shame!
It looks as if some grand renovation got under way then they simply ran out of interest (or money).
Don't make a special trip to this place.

The Castillo de La Luz is still closed for renovations, so all you can see is the facade.

“not available for visitors”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

The building is in renovation, noone can enter or make photo with it, so its not worth visiting yet. However it is next to a small park and it is quite cute, lots of children, etc.
