San Romualdo Castle

San Fernando, Spain

Neither the origins nor the date of construction of San Romualdo Castle is certain, although historians are fairly sure that this castle dates back to medieval times. Built in the Mudéjar style, it was first mentioned in 1268. It is thought to have been used as both convent and fortress.

The castle was officially declared as a historic monument by the Spanish authorities in 1931 and is easily located near the town centre, half way between the town hall and the Zuazo Bridge.

We visited the exhibition for the 275th founding anniversary of La Soledad located in the facilities of El Castillo de San Romualdo. Currently the space of the castle is used for different cultural activities: exhibitions, concerts, film screenings, etc.

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.
