We stopped here on a whim on our way elsewhere and were very pleasantly surprised by the restorations. There is a very impressive film shown in the cathedral on the history of the fortress and the varied people who lived there over the centuries. It...More
This has to be THE best castle we have visited in Spain thus far ( and we’ve visited a few!) Not only because of the fortifications but the remains of the Citadel where the armies lived together with support networks, workshops & commerce. One could...More
Really interesting with information in many languages via a handset. Easy to follow guide and helpful friendly staff.
Anyone could easily spend half a day exploring this wonderful gem. Excellent value for money
this is an amazing place, beautiful and impressive, but so few visitors find there way to this castle on the rocks (compared to Sevilla and Granada)
The site is well restored, provides interesting explanation, ao a excellent 15 minutes video !
Also the audio guide...More
We were driving from Granada to Cordoba and decided to take the scenic route instead of the freeway, and saw this fortress along N-432. Having just visited Granada, it was great to see this outpost between the Christian and Moorish kingdoms. The self-guided tour was...More
If you are on your route from Cordoba to Granada, do not miss this fortress. It is literally 5 minutes off your route, and it is totally worth seeking it out. It is the remains of an entire walled fortified city, which have been thoughtfully...More
On our way from Cordoba to Granada, we stopped at Fortaleza de la Mota in the late afternoon. After the crowds of tourists at other castles and palaces that we visited in Sevilla and Cordoba, we savored exploring this castle with very few other people,...More
If you're traveling between Cordoba and Granada this is a lovely way to spend two hours. The fortress is not really much different than others but it is still worth it. The abandonded church is facinating. The views are beautiful and the small city below...More

The car park is located at the foot of some steps up to the entrance of the fort. The steps are obviously uphill but are not too difficult, probably about 80 to 100 metres. Then there is a gently walk up to the main entrance to the fort of about another 200 metres . Once up the stairs the walk round the fort is flat and in most part accessible. There are a couple of towers which you may wish to miss out due to their difficulty but I think you would be able to manage the grounds of the fort and enjoy the atmosphere. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions just ask
Hello Derek, Thank you for your interest to visit the fortress of La Mota. Near to the parking in the tourism information point you can buy your ticket and after that you can go up to the top by car.
