Coca Castle, Spain

Coca Castle stands out from the other castles I saw during this visit to Spain because it is made almost entirely of brick. The others were cut stone. Coca, however, towers above the town and surrounding plain, showing its red brick to all comers. Currently there is a forestry school located within the castle, putting it to good use now that its military purpose is obsolete. You’ll also find artifacts at various locations as you pass through the interior of the structure. Have a look at the video.

Those dry moats are imposing, aren’t they? The town of Coca is adjacent to the castle. Here you’ll find an opportunity for some light refreshment before continuing your journey.
