CASTLES OF SPAIN - Castillo de Bedmar, Jaén. La localidad fue conquistada por Fernando III en el siglo XIII, convirtiéndose en frontera entre los reinos de Castilla y de Granada, y en foco de costantes refriegas entre moros y cristianos. Por este motivo en 1411 la Orden de Santiago construyó un nuevo castillo. Hoy en día el "nuevo" castillo de Bedmar, (declarado Bien de Interés Cultural desde 1985), se encuentra lamentablemente en estado ruinoso por falta de mantenimiento.

Sept. 26, ‪#‎FortressFriday, Here we find the important Palace Fortress of La Badia, or Castello di Magione. The site was originally a pilgrims hostel controlled by the Templars, but passed to the Order of St. John of the Hospital in the 14th century. The current fortifications we see began under the Hospitallers. In the early 16th century, it became the site for the plot against Cesare Borgia led by Cardinale Giovan Battista Orsini; a plot described in "The Prince" by Machiavelli.
