Castle Lorca Fortaleza del Sol, Murcia, Spain 

Located in Murcia Province, Lorca Castle was designed to be a defensive fortress. This concept worked well as it was never forcibly taken by invaders since its construction in medieval times. Ironically, one of the castle’s exhibits today deals with storming a castle.

The castle sits on a site of a former Muslim citadel, and is a heritage center, known as Fortress of the Sun, that offers various cultural events. The castle and its exhibits are spread over a large area, which could create some obstacles for visitors with mobility problems.
