Fodor's Expert Review Fortaleza de la Mota

Alcala la Real Ruins

The town of Alcalá la Real itself was gradually rebuilt, but the hilltop fortress, consisting of the alcazaba and the abbey church that Alfonso XI built, was more or less ignored. Up until the late 1990s, exposed skeletons were visible in some open tombs on the floor of the church. Today visitors can wander around the ruins and visit the small archaeological museum.
