Castle of Almenar

Monument since April 22nd, 1949.

 

The castle was built in the 15th century over the remains of an older castle that can still be seen today. It originally belonged to the Bravo de Laguna and Saravias y Ríos families, and till this day you can still see their coat of arms on the castle’s walls. It has a double-wall enclosure: in the interior one you can find the Keep and the weapon courtyard, and in the exterior one, you can see the defensive walls surrounding a moat with a drawbridge. Antonio Machado’s wife, Leonor Izquierdo was born in this castle on June 12th, 1894, when it was used as the Guardia Civil barracks. Two of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer’s stories are set in this castle.
