Zorita de los Canes

Zorita de los Canes is a small village in the Guadalajara region. Only 80 people live in this village, located under an ancient andalusian fortress from the Ninth Century and next to the Tajo river shore.

In my opinion, one of the best advantages of visiting Spain is that you can enjoy all this historic legacy full of magic where you can feel like traveling back in time while walking by stone streets and watching every architectural detail.

This is how the fortress looks today, more than 1,000 years after being built, by order of the Córdoba emir, Mohamed I, during the arab dominance epoch in the Iberian Peninsula.
