Great church
John Hansen (3 years ago)
The church has a Romanesque ship and choir with rich cornices, not least on the sides of the choir. A later Gothic tower stands with combed gables. The church is whitewashed with white details and very ornate. Fjelde Church is in Romanesque style, the tower of which is an extension from the 16th century. The baptismal font is from approx. 1575, while the pulpit is from ca. 1610th The altarpiece of the church is a catechism mustache as it has no image but is a tablet with Bible quotes.

A beautiful red-washed village church, built around the year 1100, where the oldest parts of the ship and the choir are in Romanesque style, while the tower and porch are in Gothic style, all of monk in the monks. After belonging to the county of Christiansholm since 1839, the church passed to self-ownership on July 1, 1916.

La Iruela Castle

The castle of La Iruela, small but astonishing, is located on the top of a steep crag in Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park. From the castle, impressive views of the surrounding area and of the town can be enjoyed.

The keep dates from the Christian era. It has a square base and small dimensions and is located at the highest part of the crag.

There are some other enclosures within the tower that create a small alcázar which is difficult to access.

In a lower area of the castle, protected with defensive remains of rammed earth and irregular masonry, is an old Muslim farmstead.

After a recent restoration, an open-air theater has been built on La Iruela castle enclosure. This theater is a tribute to the Greek and Classic Eras and holds various artistic and cultural shows throughout the year.

History

The first traces of human activity in La Iruela area are dated from the Copper Age. An intense occupation continued until the Bronze Age.

Originally, La Iruela (like Cazorla) was a modest farmstead. From the 11th century, a wall and a small fortress were built on the hill to protect the farmers.

Around 1231, don Rodrigo Ximénez de Rada, Archbishop of Toledo, conquered La Iruela and made it part of the Adelantamiento de Cazorla. Over the Muslim fortress, the current fortress was built.

Once the military use of the fortress ended, it was used as cemetery.
