Coracera castle was built by Álvaro de Luna in the 15th century, as a residence and hunting lodge. However, there are references to a previous construction, dating from the time of Alfonso VIII of Castile in the 12th and 13th centuries. The castle is in a good state, as a result of several restoration works.

Marvelous place to visit

Interesting, rather small, good panoramas. Historical. Watch for open hours. Probably the best is that wasn't crowdy.

Worth visiting

Nice but very clearly has big reconstruction. Worth visiting on the way to pantano de san juan for a 4 eur ticket.

Bien para ver sin problema como es un castillo por dentro. La visita se hace rápido ya que no hay mucho que ver solo buscar rincones con encanto y te transporten al pasado. Podría ser un gran proyecto si se le dedicara más tiempo parece que esta dejado de la mano.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
