To talk of the Monzón Castle is to enter the history of the Templars, in the childhood of King Jaime I and in the last moments of existence of the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon.
Monzón Castle, declared a National Monument, was an ancient Muslim fortification.
Here, Jaime I the Conqueror was educated as a child and, in addition, one of the most important Templar orders of the Crown of Aragon had its seat there.
It is an essential visit because you can still observe a Muslim tower, chapel and Romanesque outbuildings, underground galleries and artillery defences there.
Don't miss the Temple interpretation centre that will introduce you to the fascinating world of the warrior-monks of this military group.
