Madrigal information

This town of noble history was the birthplace of Queen Isabel the Catholic, and the chosen residence of the Court.

It owes its name to the hundreds of bastions that marked the old wall, of which only twenty-three still remain. It is indispensable to visit the Palace of Juan II, converted into the monastery of Nuestra Señora de Gracia. In it we can access several rooms, such as the Court Hall, and the chamber where Queen Isabel the Catholic was born. Also noteworthy are the church of San Nicolás de Bari, with the highest tower in the whole province at 75 metres, and the church of Santa María del Castillo, as well as the Royal Hospital, from the 15th century, which nowadays houses a museum of Mexican crafts.
