Pretty gem away from Sanssouci. Poorly maintained outdoor facilities. Difficult to find an open access. Can't you visit the inside?

I happened to be there again, so orientation and stuff. ? I'm not necessarily a fan of old castles, but I have to say I found it very nice there and then had to take a stroll through this beautiful garden. Lovingly prepared and maintained. At sunset it looks even more beautiful. The garden is open until dusk and if you're around just pop in. It is a beautiful place to stay for a while. ?

There are 4 wonderful putti in the palace gardens of Lindstedt Palace in Potsdam. Each of the boys symbolizes a different season. ???? The palace is not far from the Belvedere on the Klausberg and the Sanssouci Park in an area where it is much less busy. ? The gloomy ponds, a moor and protected wetland in the middle of the beautiful forest area Katharinenholz are also very close by. ???? In stormy and rainy weather, the environment has a very special melodramatic charm that impressed me well. ?️?️?️ By the way, Lindstedt Palace was built under Friedrich Wilhelm IV in the middle of the 19th century in the style of romantic classicism and has - like so many buildings in Potsdam - an Italianizing design language. ?? Incidentally, the building also served as a filming location for an underground secret laboratory in the film "Resident Evil" and once belonged to the ancestors of Vicco von Bülow, good old Loriot. ❤️

Very nice property with the round tower, the representative entrance to the portal and the columned aisle. The metal water reservoir above the columned aisle appears to be new and fits well with the building. I imagined what the corridor would have looked like if it had been illuminated

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.
