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.
Lopera can be reached along the national road that links Jaén and Cordoba (A-316) or via the Madrid-Cadiz Autovía de Andalucía (N-IV), with which Lopera links up via the A-6175 local road. The castle is located in the centre of Lopera.
