VISIT > Historic Flower > Ouguela´s Castle


Perched on a cliff, on the left bank of the Abrilongo stream, the castle dominates the town and tells a story whose origins date back to the pre-Roman period.

Designated by Budua during the Roman occupation phase, this space was later occupied by Visigoth communities, and then it became known as Niguela.

The castle is one of the most perfect examples of medieval and modern military architecture, preserving, until today, the characteristics of a border stronghold in a lowland region.

From its walls you can see the Spanish castle of Albuquerque.
