Cerro del Bú

Toledo, Spain

Predating Roman Toledo, this small but steep hill on the less populated side of the Río Tajo is sprinkled with Bronze Age remains overlain with vestiges of a 10th-century Moorish fort. A path leads down from the main road where there’s an explanatory board and site map. It’s best integrated into a visit to the Mirador del Valle viewpoint nearby.

Asentamiento antiguo de Toledo, son restos arqueológicos de una antigua fortaleza, aún en periodo de excavación pero en un paraje donde se tiene la ciudad a la vista con una panorámica inigualable. Totalmente recomendable por su historia además por la carretera de circunvalación. Es imprescindible ir en coche y hay aparcamiento unos metros más arriba.

Una pequeña montaña junto al río Tajo llena de naturaleza y vida, aunque muchas veces no la podamos ver y con una historia a sus espaldas de más de 2000 años

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
