Montuenga Castle

Montuenga de Soria, Spain

Montuenga Castle in Soria, Spain forms part of the defensive line of the Jalón River set in a natural passage between the plateau and strategic basin of the Ebro. The area was subject to disputes, notable during the Castilian Civil War.

The castle is perched on a high hill, steep and long, from which it dominates the town of Montuenga de Soria. The remains of the building, two polygonal towers at each end, are joined by walls.

Tumbledown castle ruins quietly defying the passage of time. There's a track at the base that you can use to get to the castle ruins - it's rutted but really done by foot. Now that the runners are not structurally sound.... One day those walls will collapse so you takes your chances if you venture too close...

The views are magnificent, but I do not recommend going there, especially in a group, since it is practically in ruins and several rocks have already fallen, so the safety of visitors could not be ensured. It is accessed via a path that zigzags up.

Great views, castle in ruins with some restoration. The very interesting town with stone and adobe construction. It's worth a stop.

Good place to go with my family on vacation I don't give it 5 stars because Andrea's roof is a bit uncomfortable

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
