Maqueda

Like so many castles, the origin was Roman, although the serious building only began around 981.
In 1083 it was taken by Alfonso VI of Castilla after which it passed through many hands.
Between 1196 and 1198 it resisted sieges of the Almoravids.
Isabel la Católica lived there for some years and later on so did the Guardia Civil..
