Lorca Castle stands guard over the nearby town of the same name in the region of Murcia in southern Spain. From up here it is possible to see for miles in every direction, and to enhance the experience, a platform with the cardinal directions of the compass has been built atop one of the towers. I made this video to show the general grounds and structure of the fortress.
For the price of admission you also get an audio guide, which is available in many languages. There are some actors about, playing the parts of knights as well as hosting children’s groups with stories of medieval life. The interpretation center is well done, with video and artifacts on display for your perusal. Of course their is a gift shop where you can buy that special postcard or trinket to send home to those not lucky enough to accompany you.
