Olvera

The XII century Arab fortress dominates the town, and was besieged and conquered by Alfonso XI in 1372.
Legend has it that the Moors, on abandoning the castle, hid some treasure there, and even today, well-equipped gold-diggers still wander the battlements in the hope of a lucky strike.
The castle has an extensive exhibition about the castles along the frontier between Christian and Muslim forces up until the Reconquest.
