CnP: Tell me about an interesting and little known fact about the castle.
PF: You know Fernando, one of the Catholic kings, he slept in the castle.
CnP: You've said sleeping here is great. How many people can enjoy the peace and quiet of the castle at the same time?
PF: We have 40 double rooms. Some of them with vaulted ceilings, private terraces, access to the towers, wooden 15th century ceilings, stone walls, you know… We do have some extra little beds for kids. Not available for adults as they won't be comfortable for them. We don't have an elevator and access to some rooms is difficult especially if you think about carrying an extra bed.
CnP: What activities do you normally offer here?
PF: Lots of them, falconry, wine tasting, castle tours, picnic in the gardens, bike tours, archery, cooking courses, bird or stars gazing. There are medieval towns nearby like Salamanca or Zamora, Iberian delights workshop, you can visit a cheese factory, do some horse riding. Some groups come here disguised as medieval knights and monks – so going medieval comes naturally.
