This is an extraordinary castle incorporating an earlier Romanesque church within its fabric and a history from the Roman period to the 19th century.


Situated overlooking the picturesque town of the same name about 50Km NE of Segovia in central Spain, Turegano castle is one of the most unusual yet little known castles in the country. It is placed on the edge of an escarpment under which the town is built.


The site of the castle was known to be occupied by a Roman fort, was later the location of an Islamic castle dating to the Islamic period and then a Christian castle after the reconquest. The buildings today show signs from all periods but the main fabric of Turegano castle is the 15th/16th century buildings and the 18th century belltower of the incorporated church.
