Castle at Giribaile, in Vilches.


Giribaile is considered to be one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain. The remains of the original Iberian settlement are located in a stunning natural landscape that also boasts many caves dug into the rock. A medieval castle, built by the Almohads in the 9th century, undoubtedly stood here.
