This extraordinary castle — built mainly in the Gothic-Mudejar style with hints of Moorish, Elizabethan and Neo-Classical influences — cuts a fine figure with its crenelated turrets, draped in ivy and rising theatrically from a sea of parkland.

Beautifully restored and in impeccable condition, this splendid castle could house a sumptuous hotel and conference venue just 75 km from Madrid.

Its precise origins are unknown, but researchers believe there may have been a castle on this site since the reign of Abd-al Rahman I in the eighth century. The earliest sections date from the 12th and 13th centuries, but the castle was substantially modified by descendants of the Catholic Kings. Passed from one aristocratic family to another, in 1856 it came into the possession of José Galofré y Coma, court painter to Isabella II. It was declared a cultural landmark in 1931.

Now beautifully restored and in impeccable condition, it houses a spectacular luxury hotel and conference venue just 75 km from Madrid in the province of Segovia.

Encompassing a total built area of 5,950 m2, the castle benefits from 25 en-suite bedrooms (including two suites) arranged over five floors and an array of conference and reception rooms, suitable for hosting events on every scale. Guests can relax in the opulent Royal Lounge, the stunning central courtyard or the atmospheric library, while panoramic views can be had from the turrets. The castle also has a fully equipped commercial kitchen with an oversized grill in open view of the restaurant, plus ample facilities for service staff.

There are a number of ancillary buildings dotted around the 79 ha estate, including a charming watermill in excellent condition that would make an ideal caretaker’s house, activity centre with toilets, an intriguing pyramidal folly, several stone warehouses (currently used for exhibitions) and a lovely chapel, a picturesque setting for weddings and events. The rest of the estate is made up of pleasant, rolling parkland, with several swimming pools.

This extraordinary castle has superb investment potential and offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of a story that runs deep into Spain’s noble and colourful past.
