Castril The Essential
Castril is a mountain village 22km west of Huéscar, on the edge of the Parque Natural de la Sierra de Castril. Its origins date back to a Roman military camp, and its name derives from the Arabic Qastal (a fortress). In the 15C, after the Reconquest, Castril was ruled by Hernando de Zafra, who built a local glassworks which kept the village prosperous until 1878; some of its items are displayed in the archaeological museum in Granada. The church in the old quarter dates from the 15C.
