Spain is famous for its monuments, museums, beaches, food, but also for its castles. From Pais Vasco to Andalusia, Spain has always been full of castles, and not all of those have survived until today. The ratio is one-tenth, we are able to see only ten percent of the Spanish castles because the 90% have been destroyed.
1. Butrón Castle, Vizcaya
2. Castle of the Knights Templars, Ponferrada
3. Bellver Castle, Mallorca
This castle, which name in Catalan means “beautiful sight” due to the grandeur view of the city of Palma, the port, and the “Serra de Tramuntana”, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, is one of the few circular fortresses in Europe and the most ancient of all circular-shaped castles, since it was built in Gothic Majorcan style at the beginning of the 14th century. Having first served as the residence of the Kings of Majorca, and afterwards, as a military prison, it became a museum in 1932.
