Villena The Essential
Interesting
In the Middle Ages the Villena region was a powerful feudal state whose territory was protected by a number of castles built on rocky outcrops. Looking out over Villena is Atalaya Castle, which is of Arab origin and has preserved its fortified surrounding wall with massive circular towers. From the top of the upper terrace, the view of the town and the mountains gives an idea of the castle's strategic importance.
