Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
The Castle of La Mota or Castillo de La Mota is a medieval fortress, located in the town of Medina del Campo, province of Valladolid, Spain. It is so named because of its location on an elevated hill, a mota (in Spanish), from where it dominates the town and surrounding land. The adjacent town came to be surrounded by an expanding series of walls in subsequent years, of which little remains.

It has been protected by the state since 1904, first as a national monument and more recently as a site of cultural interest, or Bien de Interés Cultural.

  • A beautifully restored and maintained castle. For 4 euros, we visited the castle underground with a guide who did an excellent job explaining the history and the military aspects of the site. A visit to the tower should be booked in time, because they don't allow too many people at a time.
  • One of the small northern part of Spain. About an hour from Madrid. Very nice
