This monument located in the Barajas district is classified as singular by the PGOUM (General Town Planning Project for Madrid). It is one of the scarce remains of military architecture from 15th century and one of few castles that have survived the passage of time and now arises once more after a painstaking restoration process and being converted into a museum.
The place where the Castillo de la Alameda stands (Barajas) is a space that represents all the stages of history of this territory, located between Madrid and the Jarama valley. Beneath it and its surroundings, there are remains of ancient settlements reaching from the Bronze Age to the Roman era. It is currently incorporated into the “Museums of Madrid” system, where activities and workshops for schoolchildren take place in summer.
