’Castle of Turégano.’
The castle of Turégano has a complex history. It started out as a typical Moorish enclosure castle (an alcazaba) with an outer wall whose remnants can be seen on the left. In the 12th century the Romanesque church of San Miguel was built within the Moorish walls and this church was then incorporated in a late medieval castle which is visible on the right. The church received a bell tower in the 18th century which rises above the red stoned inner curtain wall of the 15th century castle. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
