It might not be quite as authentic as Granada´s Alhambra Palace, but San Miguel de Salinas has a very convincing castle of its own to make us proud! The Castillo de Conesa is a recent replica, on the site of a former gypsum (plaster of Paris) quarry which used to be a thriving industry in the area. The castle (located about 2km south of the town centre on the CV-952 Rebate road, near the entrance to the Torrestrella and Villasmaría urbanizations) was open regularly as a restaurant, but sadly now only opens for wedding receptions. (UPDATE 2018 - THE CASTLE IS NOW OPEN AGAIN AS A RESTAURANT! CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS) Maybe one day it will become more accessible again, but until then, most of us will have to make do with admiring it from a distance. I was lucky enough to be walking back from the football (Racing San Miguel won 1-0 !!) last night and had my telephoto lens with me when I noticed the sky behind the castle was very colourful. I hope you enjoy the photos!
