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.

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.

Visita muy completa y didáctica. Las proyecciones y los carteles dan información suficiente para no necesitar guía. Mejoraría las proyecciones en la torre del homenaje ya que no se visualizan del todo bien. Por lo demás una visita muy recomendable.

Beauriful pueblo with castle and church

The price to get in escapes my mind at the moment but honestly wasn't overly exciting. The shell of the castle invites you in and then once paid you are in a large courtyard with a large olive oil thing. The rooms to explore have floating modern not even attempted to look authentic laminated looking bright faux wood. The only reason k give it three stars is because the view from the top of the castle is breathtaking of the mountains and the staff seemed friendly. Honestly this is more of just a place for people to get married or have gatherings of sorts not really a touristy thing unless you want to sit and sample local wines.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
