Ayora Castle

Just to the south of Requena (and quite a hump by bicycle) lies the village of Ayora and this magnificent Moorish castle finished in the 13th century just in time to be reconquered by the forces of Aragon. The fortress sits at 640 meters in the valley of Cofrentes-Ayora. With walls reaching six meters at certain points the castle must have been a tough nut to crack for any would-be invaders. Access to the fortress now is prohibited but the view from the village is still permitted the last time I checked.
