Stones with legends to tell
Castle of Arevalo
Castle of the XV century and reformed during the XVI by order of the Catholic Kings, to turn it into artillery fortress. It presents brick for these works of adaptation, with the characteristic Mudejar touch, typical of the area. It is of pentagonal plant with a great Tower of the Tribute and presents advance pit with rest of defenses.
It served as a royal prison of the nearby court of Madrid, housing illustrious figures, such as Prince William of Orange. After two centuries of abandonment and its use as a cemetery, the Ministry of Agriculture took charge of it in the 50s, restoring it. Currently houses the permanent exhibition "Castillo y silo. A unique place in the world."
