More about this place…

Sabiote was a walled town with six entrance gates, only three of them are preserved. In 1931 the castle was declared Historical Monument, and in 1982 the wall was declared Historical - Artistical Group. Despite the damage caused by the French troops, the restoration works are giving back little by little the full splendour that once had.
