Moguer Castle

Moguer, Spain

Castillo de Moguer was renovated and enlarged in the 14th century. The oldest record document of castle dates from 1362, but it probably existed already in the Moorish age.

The castle was built of mud-based mortar gravel, clay and lime. It is of an imperfect square plan 44 by 45 metres in size, with four towers at the corners. A moat surrounded the castle, as evidenced by written records, but is not currently visible. Access to the castle was across the northwest side, now Santo Domingo Street, via a ramp. Each tower measures 9 by 9 metres and contains two chambers with a covered brick dome. The four towers were topped by battlements. A cellar dating to the 18th century, measures 22 by 10.5 metres and serves as the headquarters of the Tourist Office.

Congratulations to the City Council and organization. In a magical space, a night of good theater tastes twice as good.

The ruins of the castle of Moguer are currently under construction. In some comments you can read that the Tourist Office is located in the courtyard. This is not the case now, maybe when the work is finished I will return here but for now all that can be seen is through a closed fence. I do not doubt its beauty and historical value in ancient times but today it is not even a shadow of what it was. Curious only if you are walking around the area.

Krickenbeck Castle

Krickenbeck moated castle is one of the oldest on the lower Rhine. Its history dates back to the year 1104, when the castle was first mentioned. It is unclear why the old castle, which was certainly inhabited by Count Reginar, was abandoned or destroyed. In the mid-13th century the castle was moved to the current location. At the end of the 14th century the new castle belonged to the Counts of Kleve.

Johann Friedrich II of Schesaberg converted the castle into a Baroque mansion between 1708-1721. On September 7, 1902, a fire destroyed the entire mansion. From 1903 to 1904, a three-winged castle was built in the Neo-Renaissance style. Today Krickenbeck is a conference center.
