Castle Of Lorca reviews
If you like historical buildings (like I do), this is a really good place to visit. Loads of information and things to see so you need quite a few hours to get around everything (I didn't manage it). Very helpful staff and caters for tourists very well (suggest you use one of the translation machines they have on offer).
Fantastic visit. Very nice castle with well laid out self guided audio tour and paid guided tours too. It's a must if you're in this area.
