Castle of the 300 towers

My guidebook says: Onda, the center of tile production. The road to Onda is lined by tile factories. In the city itself you don’t notice anything thing of this. Also of the 300 towers of the castle you see nothing. But it’s being worked on everywhere, they do their best. The ladies of the tourist office are obviously glad to have someone they can impress with their knowledge (especially the various opening times!). Otherwise, it is a cozy town, on the main square Almudin we have eaten very well.

After we take a round trip by bike through the narrow streets, which still show their Muslim origin. The church stands on the remains of a gothic temple in the middle of the narrow streets, the dome fresco is impressive.

Without e-bike, we probably would not have made it up to the castle. It is a fortress of Muslim origin from the 10th century. It must have been so impressive that the annalist said that it has as many towers as the year days. So that’s where the name comes from.
