Alcalá la Real was an important strategic enclave since pre-historic times. The cerro de la Mota hill served as an area that controlled who or what entered the city, and became a privileged place to settle. The Fortaleza de la Mota monumental complex is strategically set on the peak of this hill, at 1033 metres altitude. These characteristics, its shape and location, lend it a predominant view, a perfect natural watchtower, that dominated several kilometres of the surrounding countryside. The Islamic conquest and initiating the castellation of the hillside, brought the continued development of the walled complex and its urban fabric. The second Lord of the Kingdom of Granada, “Aben-abus Ben-Zeiri”, ordered the construction of the La Mota castle, in around the year 1000. The Moors built a city with a layout that followed the same models as the Caliphal and Almohad eras. There would have been buildings such as the military alcazaba citadel or the mosque, of which remains can no longer be identified. However, despite the clear Al-Andalus hallmark, the fortress is today the main product of the architectural reforms that the Christians carried out after their reconquest in 1341 with Alfonso XI. The old walled city or fortress also had religious, administrative and governmental buildings, as well as shopping centres. […]

The ancient Abbey Palace was reconstructed in 1781 by the Abbot Esteban Lorenza de Mendoza y Gatica, given the state of ruin of the original palace within the Fortaleza de la Mota. The new building was the end result of the aggregation of several structures, brought together by the single façade. This building was used until 1851, when the Abbey of Alcalá la Real was abolished. After years of uncertain future, it became the abbey archive and the home of the Archpriest of the Ecclesiastical Territory. Currently, and after years of restoration, the Abbey Palace is the headquarters of the Municipal Museum. This new museum was created to display, preserve and promote archaeological, ethnological, anthropological, paleontological and scientific exhibits organised into different display areas using the latest technologies.Through innovative means, the museum allows visitors to become better acquainted with Alcalá la Real’s heritage and traces of its past. It gives visitors the chance to have an overview of the town’s peculiarities, places of interest and its surrounds. Exhibition spaces: The flour room (dedicated to flour mill traditions), geology, minerals and fossils, Paleolithic, Neolithic, Copper and Bronze, Iberian world, Roman world, medieval, etc.

Santa María la Mayor church, also known as the Abbey Church, is found inside the Fortaleza de la Mota’s upper fortified enclosure, where there used to be an exemplary Muslim medina during the Islamic era with commercial and residential areas. Following the reconquest, King Alfonso XI ordered for the mosque to be demolished and built the original abbey church in its place. This Abbey was under the jurisdiction of the archbishop of Toledo and extended its dominion over a vast area. Its first headquarters was a Gothic church, remodeled following the taking of Granada, in an Renaissance style. Its reconstruction started in the second quarter of the 16th century in line with Martín de Bolívar’s designs. Its Gothic structure included a stellar vault, covered with plateresque decoration. In this sector, the funerary chapels are monumental plateresque portals, as are the entrance arches to the Baptistery. The rest of the church is the result of the transformation that took place in the 16th century by Ambrosio de Vico; subsequently, the masters Luis González and Fray Cristóbal de San José built the east end, consisting of a large triumphal arch separated into three arches of the same height; while the sacristy, annex to […]
