The New Castle of Manzanares el Real, also known as Castle of the Mendoza, is a palace-fortress erected in the fifteenth century in the town of Manzanares el Real, next to the Santillana reservoir at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama.
His work began in 1475 on a Romanesque-Mudejar and today is one of the best preserved castles in the Community of Madrid. He was raised on the river Manzanares, as a residential palace of the House of Mendoza.
The castle now houses a museum of Spanish castles and is home to a collection of tapestries. It was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1931.<< Volver
