Spanish Towns: Monteagudo Castle Brief History
Monteagudo Castle was a fortress built during the Muslim era in the Iberian Peninsula, around 1078.
The castle is situated in a strategic point, up on a mountain, where a vast piece of land could be watched, including other Spanish towns.
I can confirm that there are beautiful views, as I went to the base when I was a teenager. Crazy things you do when you’re young, as I don’t remember our climb up being the safest.
The statue of Christ of Monteagudo was not incorporated until 1951. It is 45 feet tall (14 meters) and reminds much to the huge Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which stands at 98 feet tall (30 meters).
Here’s an interesting video I found on Youtube.
