For our upcoming outing, against Villarreal CF “B”, our captain will wear an armband to bond the provinces of both teams together, in line with the series of this season guided by Huesca La Magia.

In this case, two spectacular castles are the main actors of the armband: the Castle of Morella in Castellon and the Castle of Loarre in Huesca.

Castle of Morella • Castellon 

One of the most relevant fortresses in the Valencian Community, it dates back to the thirteenth century. It was built with natural rock in a privileged area that allowed it to have full control over the territory. It was inhabited since the Neolithic to the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Iberians, the Romans, the Visigoths, the Arabs and, finally, the Catholics.

It has a 2-kilometre wall, crossed by 7 doors and 10 towers, some of which hold different museums today.

Castle of Loarre • Huesca

Built in the eleventh century, it is considered as the best preserved Romanesque fortress in Europe and therefore, it was declared to be a Site of Cultural Interest. The castle was constructed on limestone bedrock in a key location to understand its military character – at the entrance of the Pyrenees, from where you can see the whole plain laid out for view of Hoya de Huesca. During your visit, you can grasp the reality of the Kingdom of Aragon, enjoy its Romanesque art and a privileged environment.

Here you can find 5 more reasons to visit this breathtaking castle.
