Visiting xátiva castle

The caste of Xátiva is simply surprising. If you go to Xativa with any other objective in mind, one of the first things you’ll notice is the Castillo standing on the top of the mountain, looking over the city.

Walking through the castle walls, leaning through what were once windows, walking through its patios and gardens, you can perfectly imagine how this place looked in the middle ages. It’s been very well conserved. The views of the area from the top of the castle are stunning, as well as the views of the rest of the castle from one extreme. It’s a very interesting visit if you’re new the city.

Gorgeous panoramic views

Although of Iberian origin, the majority of the remaining walls and towers of the castle fortress are technically Islamic or gothic style. It was once the prison of the Kingdom of Aragón.

The panoramic views from the top of the castle are magnificent. To the north lies the city and the plains along the Júcar river. To the south are the dry lands and Grossa, Mariola and Benicadell Sierra mountains. To the west, the border with Castilla. To the east, the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a beautiful place.

This fortification is rooted in Iberian construction that took advantage of the higher parts of the mountain at this point (Lower Castle). The Romans then to conquer, añadieran another high point in presenting a second mountain fortress communicated with the previous (High Castle). Both were refurbished by the Arabs, which also widened the wall, until it practically coincide with the currently known. Then, with greater or lesser reforms, these castle walls and faced the conquest of James I, the rebellion of the Germania and the War of Succession, but the basis of the architectural was it.

Esta fortificación tiene sus orígenes en una construcción ibérica que aprovechaba una de las partes más altas de la montaña en este punto (Castillo Menor).
Los romanos, posteriormente, al conquistarla, añadieran en el otro punto elevado que presentaba la montaña una segunda fortaleza que se comunicaba con el anterior (Castillo Mayor).
Ambas fueron reformadas por los árabes, que además ensancharon la muralla, hasta hacerla coincidir prácticamente con la actualmente conocida.
Después, con mayores o menores reformas, estas murallas y el castillo afrontaron la conquista de Jaime I, la rebelión de las Germanías y la Guerra de Sucesión, pero la base del conjunto arquitectónico fue ésta.

Built by the Iberians, this castle has been remodeled countless times, so different architectural styles Veris throughout the complex. two sides differ, the lower castle is the oldest part and the second largest castle building aadida by the Romans. Much of the castle derrumb during the earthquake replicas Portugal, but what is in between pi you can visit the prison and the different doors tena the castle.

Una joya muy cerca de valencia

Este castillo que gana popularidad en las redes sociales cada día, no os dejará indiferentes después de su visita. Construido por los Iberos, este castillo ha sido remodelado en innumerable ocasiones, por lo que veréis diferentes estilos arquitectónicos en todo el complejo.

Se diferencian dos partes, el castillo menor que es la parte mas antigua y el castillo mayor segunda construcción añadida por los romanos. Una gran parte del castillo se derrumbó durante las réplicas del terremoto de Portugal, pero de entre lo que queda en pié se puede visitar la prisión y las diferentes puertas que tenía el castillo.

Esta fortificación ha sido usada como prisión, y fue estratégica en tiempo del los romanos, así como cuando el Reino de Valencia peleaba contra Castilla...

Para visitarlo tendremos que subir cuestas pronunciadas, por lo que el calzado cómodo sería esencial. El mejor momento para realizar la visita? Yo diría que por la tarde, ya que después de la visita guiada podréis disfrutar de la maravillosa puesta de sol que os muestro en las fotos.

Espero que os guste este maravilloso Castell tanto como a mi!

Excursion from valencia

The inland Valencia offers several points of interest in unusual excursion during your trip, and Xativa is one of them. First for the city itself, which is typically Spanish and a little touristy, and second for its majestic fortress. The castle is actually composed of two towers, the first "Castell Menor" of Iberian origin and the second "Castell Major", added later to the Roman conquest. It ranks in the ancient "Via Augusta" which connected Rome to Cadiz and Cartagena, through the Pyrenees. The entrance is € 2.40, and breathtaking views.

Escursione da valencia

L'entroterra Valenciano offre diversi punti d'interesse per un'escursione insolita durante il vostro viaggio, e Xativa è uno di questi. Primo per la città in sè che è tipicamente spagnola e poco turistica, e secondo per la sua maestosa fortezza.
Il castello è in realtà composto di due fortezze, la prima "Castell Menor", di origine iberica e la seconda "Castell Major", aggiunta in seguito alla conquista dei romani.
Si colloca nell'antica "Via Augusta" che collegava Roma con Cadiz e Cartagena, attraverso i Pirenei.
L'entrata è di 2,40€, e regala panorami mozzafiato.

Located atop a hill, the castle dominates the town of Xativa. Walk the walk to get there is very pleasant, and the visit of the fortress, under the sun, is equally important. Well preserved castle walls are of Spanish and Roman origins, although some places denotes the Gothic style. Former state prison at the time of the kings of Aragon, the castle of Xativa now a fine excuse to nature walk along the small jump in history.

Situé au sommet d'une colline, le château domine le village de Xativa. La ballade à pieds pour y accéder est des plus agréables, et la visite de la forteresse, sous le soleil, l'est tout autant. Bien conservé, les murs du château sont d'origines espagnole et romaine, bien qu'on dénote par endroit le style gothique. Ancienne prison d'État à l'époque des rois d'Aragon, le château de Xativa constitue aujourd'hui un beau prétexte de promenade en pleine nature en même temps que de petit saut dans l'histoire.

The capital of the region of the Iberian Coast is foundation, but we can say that all cultures have passed through it. It is a monumental with streets like Montcada, with samples soleriegas houses. Among its highlights the collegiate church, which once had great wealth, and the century of St. Francis and St. Felix XIV, XV Gothic. In ancient wheat market is the municipal museum with curious pieces, and we recommend you visit the old hospital and the palace of the Marquis de Montortal, both the XV. And above all, it pays you upload to the castle, Roman base with two distinct parts and the Nou Castell Vell, bordered by a splendid wall that retains thirty of its towers.

La capital de la comarca de La Costera es de fundación íbera, aunque se puede decir que todas las culturas han pasado por ella. Es un conjunto monumental con calles como la de Montcada, con muestras de casas soleriegas.
Entre sus iglesias destaca la colegiata, que llegó a tener gran riqueza, y las de san Francisco del siglo XIV y Sant Fèlix, gótica del XV. En la antigua lonja del trigo está el museo municipal con piezas curiosas, y también te aconsejamos que visites el antiguo hospital y el palacio del marqués de Montortal, ambos del XV. Y, sobre todo, vale la pena que subas hasta el castillo, de base romana y con dos partes muy diferenciadas el Castell Vell y el Nou, bordeados de una espléndida muralla que conserva treinta de sus torres.

Its fortress or castle, though of Iberian and Roman, most of the walls and towers that have been preserved are Islamic or technical Gothic: Was the arrest of State of the Crown Kings of Aragon. The panorama from the top of the castle is magnificent: the north, the city and the plain of the river Júcar; south the dryland and saws Grossa, Mariola and Benicadell; west, the border with Castilla, and this one Mar Mediterranean intuited better. It's a lovely place.

A sua fortaleza ou castelo, ainda que de origem ibérica e romana, a maior parte dos muros e torres que se conservaram são de técnica islâmica ou de estilo gótico: Era a prisão de Estado dos Reis da Coroa de Aragão. A panorâmica desde o alto do castelo é magnífica: Ao norte, a cidade e a planície da ribeira de Júcar; ao sul as terras de sequeiro e as serras Grossa, Mariola e Benicadell; ao oeste, a fronteira com Castilla; e ao este um Mar Mediterrâneo melhor intuído. É um lugar encantador.
