This fortress located in the National Park of the Sierra de Irta was built in the 10th century as a part of the chain of Moorish forts guarding the passage to Valencia. I added Castillo de Xivert to my collection of places I want to see because it was owned by Templars in the 15th century. The history of the Knights Templar is fascinating and I like soaking up the atmosphere of sites associated with the Order of the Temple.
