  • Alquezar

    Yesterday I went to the town of Alquezar on recommendation from some friends. From the spanish info boards I gathered the town and obligitory hilltop castle was built by the Moors in the 8th century. It was then captured by the invading Europeans around 1100 and a church built right in the middle of the castle!

    Heres some shots from a walkabout around the town, which looks to have been carefully restored and expanded with some recent construction in between the ancient structures.

    From inside the hilltop church...

    Some of the church detailing was pretty cool - heres a sample....
