Nice view to the Alhambra. But not on the entrance they permite dogs. There is no seat on the entrance to wait with the dog while my husband went in to see. The Guardian called immediatly the Police when I steped trough the dor!! Not tourist kindly!!

Fine views of the Al Hambra from a place where the tourists don't usually go. Pay parking at the top of the hill in a car park and then a 1km walk up a rough road to the top. Well worth the effort. Silla del Moro itself is only open on Saturdays and Sundays but the view out over Al Hambra and Grenada is superb and well worth the walk.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
