Castillo Butrón

Originally an important protective fort in the middle ages, the Castle of Butron is a sight to behold and a local landmark. 

Built as a fort in the thirteenth century, it grew into a defensive tower owned by the Butron family, over a period of three hundred years this castle was the backdrop of the many clan battles between local families. It was then forgotten until nineteenth century and was renovated into the spectacular historic building that stands here today, inspired by fairy tale Bavarian castles. The castle of Butron sits silently in the lush green valley of Gatika surrounded by a hundred year old forest. The castle is currently closed to the public.
