The exterior of the castle and the views make it worth a stop. Too bad it hasn't been restored. You can see Madrid on a clear day.

It is a shame that this castle will eventually crumble since no one is maintaining it. I can only imagine what the cost to restore the castle would be, so it is a good thing I do not live in Spain or I would probably...More

A castle is closed and in poor condition, but the view of the valley is beautiful. Not worth a trip.
