The great emblem of Sigüenza is its castle. As you approach the town it is impossible not to see it, perched on the top of a hill, imposing and announcing the history that permeates here. The name of this town refers to its victories, to the success it had in remaining here over time, and this fortress only reinforces this. Once intimidating, this castle is now a magnet for visitors craving the charm of the Middle Ages and the intricacies of nobility and royalty.
It has existed since the 12th century, but was built on the foundations of the citadel that provided defence during the Muslim domination, of which no trace remains. What is there now is this postcard of Sigüenza, with its iconic fairytale barbican, with its flags flying from the top of the towers.
