Magaña Castle

Magaña Castle lies it a quiet village by the same name, in the northeast of the province of Soria in Spain.

There is little info about this castle, but not all historical files have been researched, so some may become available in the future. Its construction and layout style dates it to the Senorial castles of the 15th century. It lies in one of the mountainous and rustic territories of the Soria province, near to the town of Agreda. Being build on a high promontory it dominates the landscape and the village below. It's very ruinous nowadays.

Magaña Castle consists of two concentric enclosures. The interior inclosure is rectangular, with round towers at two of its corners and the keep, which even conserves remnants of battlements, at another. The outer enclosure lies lower than the interior one and is very small. It has a polygonal plan with seven round towers in its walls.

Magaña Castle is very nice to visit and is freely accessible. When I visited, a team of some 6 workers were busy clearing the walls of their overgrowth. And please ignore those ugly power lines across the two pictures.
