Sorry for my title pun, but I think this spectacular fortress built by the Arabs in the thirteenth century is so perfectly at peace with its surroundings you have to look twice to see where the stones end and the edifice begins. The fortress held many invaders at bay but, of course, it's a hotel now and I was lucky enough to stay there when I was in Spain. We had actually planned to go straight to Granada after leaving Toledo, but we saw this castle and had to investigate. They had a room--with a fabulous view--and so... It was fabulous.
