The castle is simply incredible.

To enter the castle must first go to the tourist office located at his feet. It has a coffee is also a center of interpretation. All tickets for the tour, which lasts about an hour and a half and only costs 4 are purchased. In addition, belonging to the Castle Road, also can stamp the passport of the route. During the visit, very pretty focused didactics and tourists, all rooms of the castle are crossed, including the roof of the keep, where the views are breathtaking. This tour also includes a video about how pedagogical sieges and assaults on the streets during the Middle Ages were made. It is important also to note that access to the area is quite good, as is accessible by car (and park) to the square just at the foot of the castle, just 300 meters from the Office of Information and about 600 meters entrance of the castle, which can also be reached by car. However, the tour is not suitable for disabled guests, as there is with some steps; especially the keep. In short: a visit 100% recommended, with a good guide to answer any questions referred to it.

El castillo es, simplemente, increíble.

Para entrar al castillo hay que ir primero a la oficina de turismo situada a sus pies. Tiene una cafetería y es también un centro de interpretación. Allí se compran las entradas para la visita guiada, que dura una hora y media aproximadamente y sólo cuesta 4 €. Además, al pertenecer a la Ruta de los Castillos, también puedes sellar el pasaporte de dicha ruta.

Durante la visita, muy didáctica y bastante enfocada al turista, se recorren todas las salas del castillo, incluyendo la azotea de la torre del homenaje, desde donde las vistas son impresionantes. Esta visita incluye también un vídeo pedagógico acerca de cómo se realizaban los asedios y los asaltos a las plazas durante la Edad Media.

Es importante destacar también que el acceso a la zona es bastante bueno, pues se puede acceder en coche (y aparcar) a la plaza que hay a los pies del castillo, a escasos 300 metros de la Oficina de Información y a unos 600 metros de la entrada del castillo, a la que también puede llegarse en coche. No obstante, el recorrido no está acondicionado para personas con movilidad reducida, pues hay algunos tramos con escaleras; en especial la torre del homenaje.

En resumen: una visita 100% recomendable, con un buen guía que responderá a cualquier pregunta que le sea planteada.

El espíritu de los monjes guerreros

El castillo de Alcaudete fue construido originalmente por los árabes en un cerro escarpado para facilitar la defensa del lugar, que entonces era una encrucijada estratégica a nivel geográfico y comercial, aunque es especialmente conocido por su etapa de pertenencia a la Orden de Calatrava que lo reconstruyeron y re-estructuraron durante los siglos XIII y XIV. Luego fue propiedad privada y desde hace unas décadas es público.

Gran parte del castillo está restaurado y en la torre del homenaje aún podemos encontrarnos el autético espíritu de os monjes guerreros de Calatrava.

Para concertar la visita hay que llamar al número de la oficina de turismo (en los datos del rincón). Puede visitarse de lunes a viernes entre las 9.00 y las 14.00 horas y los fines de semana y festivos, de 11.00 a 13.30

The Alcaudete Castle was originally built for the Arabs in a steep choline to facilitate the defense of this place, which was once a strategic crossroads in terms of geography and trade, although it is best known for the period during which belonged to the Order Calatrava who rebuilt and restructured in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Later it became a private property and a decade it has become public. Much of the castle has been renovated and the tower of the homage we can still find the authentic spirit of two warrior monks of Calavatra. To book a visit should call the tourist office. It can be visited from 9.00 to 14.00 and weekends and holidays from 11.00 to 13.30

Il castello di Alcaudete fu in origine costruito per gli arabi in una ripida colina per facilitare la difesa di questo posto, che una volta era un incrocio strategico a livello geografico e commerciale, anche se è noto soprattutto per il periodo in cui apparteneva all'Ordine di Calatrava che lo ricostruirono e ristrutturarono nel XIII e XIV sec. Successivamente divenne proprietà privata e da una decina di anni è diventato pubblico. Gran parte del castello è stato ristrutturato e nella torre dell'omaggio possiamo ancora trovare l'autentico spirito di due monaci guerrieri di Calavatra. Per prenotare la visita bisogna chiamare l'ufficio del turismo. Lo si può visitare dalle 9.00 alle 14.00 e i weekends e i giorni festivi dalle 11.00 alle 13.30
