What to see in Siguenza, Spain
Siguenza is a small city in Spain that is probably not on everyones’ list of what to see while in Spain but it is a lovely city that can be seen on a day trip.
The city has an interesting history as its fortress was used during civil wars as far back as the 13th and 14th centuries and during the Spanish Civil War.
The Cathedral of Siguenza has the presence of a fortress as it is rather a massive block. Another main site is a castle that is now a Parador (a state-run hotel). You can see the lobby and the main courtyard of the hotel but, as with other Paradors, I also recommend that you eat lunch there. There is nothing like having lunch in a castle in Spain – put that on a postcard to send back home!
I also recommend that you walk outside of the city and along the hill to the back of the castle as it is an impressive fortress to see from all angles.
The city itself is rather quiet but it does have a few nice Spanish pottery shops. Overall it is a pleasant day trip!
