Buitrago del Lozoya fortress

Buitrago del Lozoya preserves this authentic fortification that had defensive purposes at the time of the Reconquest. It had a rectangular floor plan, a central parade ground and several towers.

The castle or fortress is linked to the Mendoza family, on which the town depended in the 14th century. The construction that has survived to the present day dates from that century or the next, when it became the residence of the Marquis of Santillana and his family, future dukes of Infantado.

Address: Plaza del Castillo, 28730 Buitrago del Lozoya, Madrid. Buitrago is 60 km north through A-1 highway. Reach Buitrago by bus with line 191 running from Plaza Castilla.
