Castle of Baños de la Encina.

Baños de la Encina

This is one of the best-preserved castles in all al-Andalus. Its solid tabiyya walls, made of dry mud rich in lime, are the best example of al-Andalus military architecture of all Europe. Throughout history, the castle has served as a shelter for warriors, a home to royalty, a parish cemetery and even a film set for El Capitán Trueno and El Santo Grial. Undoubtedly, it is one of the tour’s castles that makes an impression in a unique setting.
