Coca information

Birthplace of the famous Roman emperor Theodosius the Great. Without a doubt, the most important feature of the town is its castle, one of the best-preserved in Spain.

The Mudejar castle of Coca is considered to be one of the finest examples of brick military architecture.

Archbishop Don Alonso de Fonseca ordered to built it at the end of the 15th century, during the reign of Enrique IV of Castile.

It has two areas with a square plan, flanked at the corners by polygonal towers, one of them the Keep.

It possesses richly-decorated walls distributed around a large Renaissance courtyard and is surrounded by a deep moat. Also worth a visit are the remains of the wall, the town's arch and the church of Santa María la Mayor, which houses the alabaster tomb of the Fonseca family.
