A perfect accommodation to spend a few quiet days. A beautiful house that does not lack anything. The owner is very attentive. Highly recommended.

No wifi No pool We can see that the house does not have all the comforts in the kitchen. The place lacks a nearby market or a Chinese one, there is no shop in the town and it is quite small, if you want a retreat it is For good

Thank you very much for the great reception, you have made us feel very comfortable at all times. I have loved being able to enjoy the house with friends and savor the barbecues that we have done. We have found everything we have needed during the stay. But we had a big problem: WE HAD TO RETURN !!!! Time has passed very quickly and we will really repeat, so I recommend it 100%. Sergio thank you very much for everything. Your time, personality, kindness and attention. You really have made our stay perfect. WITH A LOT OF WANT TO REPEAT !!!

The terrace where the barbecue is is very small and is very closed. You swallow all the smoke.

Our family meeting place for years. We always come back. My father is waiting for his birthday to celebrate here (there are several). I think you should be your longest-lived customer. Thanks Sergio. He is very comfortable here. Keep taking care of us so well ...

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.
