Castle of Lopera.


In Lopera you will find one of the best examples of a castle built by the Military Order of Calatrava in Jaén province. Declared a Monument of Cultural Interest in 1991, the fortress preserves the original wall, although over the years it has also been used as a residence and even a winery in the mid-20th century.
