Calatrava la Nueva - Spain

Calatrava la Nueva

Calatrava la Nueva is a medieval castle, situated on a hill above the plains of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain.  The castle and convent here were home to a religious order of knights – the Order of Calatrava.  They waged war against the Moorish population of Spain and helped with the reconquest and unification of Spain.

The castle lies in a barren land, mainly scrubland and has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside.  Little of the castle remains intact aside from the huge gateways and curtain wall.
